Jackson Pollock


Jackson Pollock is a very interesting artist considering his artwork is extremely complex and abstract. He quoted “I want to express my feelings rather than illustrate them. It doesn’t matter how the paint is put on as long as something is said.” He has drawn a numerous number of paintings which cannot be easily understood. Just like the painting that is shown above, messy, unorganized, and strange. However, these paintings have a very deep hidden feature about himself and his emotions. Jackson Pollock created this artwork which was titled “Convergence” in 1952. Convergence is one of Jackson Pollock’s representation of his famous dripped and poured paintings. The painting was done during the Cold War meaning people were angry and depressed.
