Artist of the Week: Jackson Pollock


Hi guys,

Decided for a new series. Artist of the Week. A showcase on a different artist. For inspirational purposes.

I believe it is important to know what those before you created. Art is like a pyramid. You add on top of what others created.

That being said, the first artist is one whose influence to modern art is impossible to deny.

Jackson Pollock.



I am by no means an art critic, so I’ll just say that I admire his paintings for their bizarre complexity. Colors influence emotions, or so psychologists claim. And having so many colors, all fighting to be noticed, is undoubtedly a way to make people feel something.

What does that make you feel?

What do you make of it?

What does it mean?

To each of us, art means something different. It affects us differently.

  1. Great idea to highlight different artists. I always enjoy reading your insights into creativity. I also love Jackson Pollock. One of his masterpieces, “Blue Poles”, is in the Australian National Gallery in Canberra and worth the trip up there to see if visiting this country. The blue poles have rhythm and nothing is random. It is beautiful. You could gaze at it for hours and become lost in the layers of paint like in meditation. The same could be said for the wonderful examples of his work that you have posted.
