Jackson Pollock – Action painting / Dripping / Abstract expressionism


Deeply lonely and stubborn
the intellectualization of his painting, Jackson Pollock refused all
labels, all the chapels of the art, or even being considered the head
leading to action painting or as inventor official dripping. Yet expressionism
abstract was for him a profound agreement a way to directly communicate his intentions,
free of contingencies closed frame canvas and intermediaries that are
brushes and knives. Pollock led as far as he could this
appropriation of space by his impulses deeper. Having created a
work very strong, based only Data instinct, he made a world
ordered seemingly a world of chaos, significantly probably closer to our real world.
He was barely fifteen when appeared home early signs of alcoholism.
The drawing was then for him the possibility discharging its overflow of emotions,
