Jackson Pollock


Jackson Pollock is an artist who uses mark making by splashing and dripping paint to create these abstract paintings. His most famous phase was his second phase of painting. He was a main character in the Abstract Expressionist movement. He layers huge canvases on the floor by dripping household paint onto them straight from the tin. The energy used to create these marks of paint are shown evidently with fast swipes of paint across the canvas.This type of painting for him was said to be expressing his innermost feelings, resulting in a complex, textured and thickly applied lines of paint creating a mesh of colours. For me his work is very interesting but only for his use of expressing his emotions through mark making as is representation of how he fell through creating his pieces is a representation of how he feels through creating his piece.
