Pollock Gone Wild

Inspired by Jackson Pollock


Painting with The Masters

Art within Art Series

11 x 14 Interior Oil Painting on Canvas

Several years ago I painted a small similar
painting to this one. I liked it so much I decided
to do another. Obviously with Pollock's style
you could never make two paintings inspired by
him, to similar!

I guess this is the way I see him when I think of him.
I saw the movie and he was so erratic with his work
and paint was everywhere. I could just see him doing
this to a room, bare feet and all walking in the paint!

I had such fun just splashing paint on the canvas
and all over everything!! A Fun painting with
a lot of energy... an event... as his work was 
once called. 


Pollock Gone Wild

Paul Jackson Pollock (January 28, 1912 – August 11, 1956), known as Jackson Pollock, was an influential American painter and a major figure in the abstract expressionist movement. He was well known for his unique style of  Drip painting.
During his lifetime, Pollock enjoyed considerable fame and notoriety, a major artist of his generation. Regarded as reclusive, he had a volatile personality, and struggled with alcoholism for most of his life. In 1945, he married the artist Lee Krasner, who became an important influence on his career and on his legacy.
Pollock died at the age of 44 in an alcohol-related, single-car accident; he was driving. In December 1956, several months after his death, Pollock was given a memorial  retrospective exhibition at the  Museum of Modern Ar (MoMA) in  New York City. A larger, more comprehensive exhibition of his work was held there in 1967. In 1998 and 1999, his work was honored with large-scale retrospective exhibitions at MoMA and at The  Tate in LondonIn 2000, Pollock was the subject of the film  Pollock, directed by and starring  Ed Harris, which won an  Academy Award.

Critical debate[
Pollock's work has been the subject of important critical debates. The critic Robert Coates once derided a number of Pollock’s works as “mere unorganized explosions of random energy, and therefore meaningless.
In a famous 1952 article in ARTnews,  Harold Rosenberg coined the term "action painting," and wrote that "what was to go on the canvas was not a picture but an event. The big moment came when it was decided to paint 'just to paint.' The gesture on the canvas was a gesture of liberation from value—political, aesthetic, moral." Many people assumed that he had modeled his "action painter" paradigm on Pollock.
 Clement Greenbergsupported Pollock's work on formalistic grounds. It fit well with Greenberg's view of art history as a progressive purification in form and elimination of historical content. He considered Pollock's work as the best painting of its day and the culmination of the Western tradition via Cubism and  Cezanne to Manet..
