абстрактное действие

Джексон Поллок

Революционер абстрактного экспрессионизма Джексон Поллок (1912–1956) ярко сиял как неповторимая звезда в американском художественном пейзаже. Наблюдая за идеями таких источников, как Пикассо и мексиканский сюрреализм, он отверг подражание, что бы создать свой собственный способ видения, интерпретации и выражения.

Pollock’s most famous works are his drip paintings, where he dripped and poured household enamel paint over the canvas with a variety of instruments, from sticks to syringes, hardened brushes to broken bits of glass. The splattered results pulsate with energy, replacing the refinement of easel and brush with something altogether more immediate, vivid, and physical. To evade the viewer’s search for figurative elements in his paintings, Pollock abandoned titles and identified each work with a neutral number only.

Notoriously reclusive and volatile, struggling with alcoholism, married to fellow Abstract Expressionist Lee Krasner, and killed in a car crash aged just 44, Pollock is as much a compelling celebrity icon as an artistic pioneer. This essential artist introduction explores both his work and his fame to shed light on masterpieces of the modernist story, and the making of a cultural icon.
