JASON POLLEN

...
Jason Pollen says of his current work, "My recent fabric constructions echo the wordless world of the child at play. With undiminished curiosity, Pollen continues his creative explorations by coaxing bits of dyed cloth, bound together and animated by drawing with stitches and tangles of thread, into poignant truths that reflects his life's work and journey.
Jason Pollen received his undergraduate and graduate studies in painting at The City College of New York City. He was on the faculty of the Royal College of Art in London, Parsons School of Design, and Pratt Institute, in New York, before serving as chair of the fiber department at Kansas City Art Institute (1997-2010).
Pollen exhibits his fabric constructions internationally. He had designed textiles for dozens of fashion and home furnishings firms and has collaborated as scenic designer for the Kansas City Ballot. He was named Fellow by the American Crafts Council in 2006 and is President Emeritus of the Surface Design Association.
