Jackson Pollock Portrait by Rourke Van Dal


Decollage & Sculpted Paint protruding from the surface of a Discarded Pallett. Newpaper, Emulsion & Acrylic

In 1946 Jackson Pollock’s artwork went through dramatic changes with the emergence of his dripped and poured canvases. These “drip” paintings consisted of layered swirls of color on black ground in which the artist’s process and movements can be seen in how the colors are layered on top of one another. Pollock became on of the most famous painters of the Abstract Expressionist movement and/or style for his gestural paint application: pouring, flicking and dripping onto canvas laid out on the floor. He used sticks, brushes and chicken-basters to apply the paint to the canvas. Pollock believed that the “action” of the artist tapped into the subconscious – automatism. He was primarily interested in the dramatic unfolding of the unconscious on the painting’s surface and the creation of an allover surface. He believed that dripped and poured canvases eliminated all recognizable imagery and that an act of painting was an act of self-realization heavily influenced by existentialism – which draws on their principle of state of being is defined by action.

Historical and Cultural Context: In the early ’50s the Abstract Expressionist movement became increasingly more popular in New York as well as in Europe. The artists working in this style sought to express inner feelings, spiritual ideas and universal concepts through abstract forms. In an effort to move away from World War II, the Holocaust in Europe, the threat of the atomic bomb and McCarthyism in America, Abstract Expressionist artists transformed the activity of painting into an almost spiritual practice. Formal elements such as line, shape and color became the means to express universal feelings, spirituality and even sometimes the psyche of the artist.
