Jackson Pollock

Some might think that my kid-brother would be able to make this artwork, but it doesn't stop me from being mesmerized by it. These huge-scale paintings, engulf the viewer and allow the viewer to use the art as a vehicle to their own emotions. The paint is not the subject of the painting, it is the process by which the paint was placed on the canvas; this process of displaying emotions revolutionized the concept of traditional painting methods. Considered an Abstract Expressionist, Pollock uses his art to express his own inner emotions and allow the abstract concept of his emotion to come out on a real, tangible object. Pollock's work is an expression of something inexpressible.
