5 Jackson Pollock ( ) Jackson Pollock was the first expressionist all-over painter, pouring paint instead of using brushes and a palette, and abandoning all conventions of realism. He danced all over his canvases spread across the floor lost in his patterning, dripping and dribbling with total control. He felt the painting has a life of its own, and he would let it come through. Pollock was born in 1912 in Cody, Wyoming, but his family moved that same year to Arizona and later to California. He grew up in Los Angeles and began developing an interest in art at an early age. He liked the art movement known as Surrealism and at the age of 18 moved to New York City to live with his brother and go to school at the Art Students League. His teacher, Thomas Hart Benton, taught him to do landscapes and he was able to use his talent to support himself as an easel painter during the Great Depression. He had his first one-man show in 1943 at the Guggenheim Art-of-This-Century Gallery in New York City. He was fortunate to have exhibits of his art almost every year from then on. Jackson Pollock tried many different styles of art but found abstract art to be what he could most identify with. He was greatly influenced by the abstract painters Pablo Picasso ad Joan Miro. He also liked the dreamlike and unreal aspect of the Surrealists. He used their influences to help him discover his own technique and style. In the 1940s, Pollock tried painting what he called action painting, a type of painting that involved using his whole body. He would place a piece of canvas on the ground and runaround as fast as he could, pouring different colors of paint onto the canvas. H e would sometimes fling paint onto his canvas to give it a splattered effect. He found this form of innovative painting gave him the ability to express his feelings on canvas through random patterns and shapes. He could use a variety of shape, line and color through his action painting. He often said that his painting controlled him and that when he was involved in his painting, he was totally unaware of what he was doing or what was happening around him. He felt that abstract painting took on a life of its own, unlike realism, which had a certain set of standards that realist painters went by. Although he died in 1956 at the age of 44, he has left a legacy of art behind him. Looking at his art, one can still feel the energy of the painting as if the canvas was still in progress, and the artist had just stepped out for a minute.

6 Jackson Pollock ( ) Jackson Pollock is known as a pioneer of Abstract Expressionism. He was born in Cody, Wyoming in He began to study painting in 1929 at the Art Students' League, New York, under the Regionalist painter Thomas Hart Benton. During the 1930s he worked in the manner of the Regionalists, being influenced also by the Mexican muralist painters (Orozco, Rivera, Siqueiros) and by certain aspects of Surrealism. From 1938 to 1942 he worked for the Federal Art Project. By the mid 1940s he was painting in a completely abstract manner, and the `drip and splash' style for which he is best known emerged with some abruptness in Instead of using the traditional easel he affixed his canvas to the floor or the wall and poured and dripped his paint from a can; instead of using brushes he manipulated it with `sticks, trowels or knives' (to use his own words), sometimes obtaining a heavy impasto by an admixture of `sand, broken glass or other foreign matter'. This manner of Action painting had in common with Surrealist theories of automatism that it was supposed by artists and critics alike to result in a direct expression or revelation of the unconscious moods of the artist. Pollock's name is also associated with the introduction of the All-over style of painting which avoids any points of emphasis or identifiable parts within the whole canvas and therefore abandons the traditional idea of composition in terms of relations among parts. The design of his painting had no relation to the shape or size of the canvas -- indeed in the finished work the canvas was sometimes docked or trimmed to suit the image. All these characteristics were important for the new American painting which matured in the late 1940s and early 1950s. During the 1950s Pollock continued to produce figurative or quasi-figurative black and white works and delicately modulated paintings in rich impasto as well as the paintings in the new allover style. He was strongly supported by advanced critics, but was also subject to much abuse and sarcasm as the leader of a still little comprehended style; in 1956 Time magazine called him `Jack the Dripper'. By the 1960s, however, he was generally recognized as the most important figure in the most important movement of this century in American painting, but a movement from which artists were already in reaction (Post-Painterly Abstraction). His unhappy personal life (he was an alcoholic) and his premature death in a car crash contributed to his legendary status. In 1944 Pollock married Lee Krasner ( ), who was an Abstract Expressionist painter of some distinction, although it was only after her husband's death that she received serious critical recognition.
