Exhibition review in The Guardian
7 September 2022
New exhibition: Ingrid Pollard Three Drops of Blood has received a 4 star review in The Guardian's Culture section by Ashish Ghadiali.
"Race, botany and folklore are interwoven with sublime skill by the Turner-nominated artist to explore colonial attitudes to race and Englishness... the best evidence around that here is an artist, who... is only now coming into the peak of her creative powers, is to be found off the beaten track, at Thelma Hulbert Gallery in Honiton, East Devon, where a new solo show, Three Drops of Blood, brings together Pollard’s recent engagement with 19th-century botanical collections and East Devon’s history as a former world centre of lace-manufacturing with her own enduring concern with questions of race and the legacies of empire."
