Jamahl Pollard - Visual Artist
Welcome to the art works of Jamahl Pollard, a site that is different from the rest. Friends have asked why I called the site 4Dart as it stands for 4th dimensional Art. Well I feel that my work comes straight from the heart, a journey in to the inner depths of the conscious and unconscious mind. I explore my interactions as a person with a disability in a main stream community.Even though I am vision impaired (categorised) as legally blind), I am the creator of these works. With 6.4%, peripheral vision in my left eye and the right eye being artificial. I can see in great detail up to 30cm's away and after that I see only colourful shapes with little or no detail, depending on the size of the objects around me. The use of fairly strong reading glasses and sometimes a magnifying glass enables me to create the work. For most of my observations I use a monocular scope (half a binocular) to view things from a distance.
