A new video produced by Ronan Pollock presents the life and work of painter Fred Pollock.

Pollock remarks: "Starting from scratch was a case of making marks on the canvas with no preconceived ideas to begin with - and just gradually by building up the paint - a series of colors and marks - you would eventually cover the canvas. Then you notice that things are beginning to happen in various areas of the canvas and it was a case of getting these events to pull together to create one entity... you're always finding out something new from your painting - you're searching for something that's new... something that's truthful to yourself... It's the doing that's the really interesting part of the painting... It's a continual daily search."
