Jackson Pollock - Work, Writings, Interviews

Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) is undoubtedly one of the most influential American painters of the 20th century. Died at the age of 44, he nonetheless bequeathed a substantial body of pioneering work to countless later artists for whom he became a model of bravery, courageous improvisation, and ballet grace. Throughout his life, Pollock wrote very little about his own art or that of others, but in the few complete writings that remain, and in some unpublished and undated notes, all of which are collected in this volume, the concerns are remarkably consistent. Pollock regularly referred to his interest in the unconscious as the source of modern art, and in abstraction as an element that allows both the direct expression of an "inner world," of individual feelings, and the urgencies and stresses of modern American life ( famously characterized, in his words, by "the plane, the atomic bomb, the radio"). Pollock's most famous statement about his method exemplifies this concern for a creativity that arises from an unconscious: "When I'm painting, I'm not aware of what I'm doing. It's only after a kind of 'familiarization' period." . that I see what I've been doing." In this introduction to Pollock's art and thought, Nancy Jachec traces these and other themes through 120 color reproductions.
