I am no Jackson Pollock, and so can you!

jackson-pollock

I’ll be the first to admit, I’ve never been a big fan of Jackson Pollock, but can appreciate his message and approach. Never having the opportunity to try his methods before, I could not really see his challenge of finding the right amount of spacial balance and color choice. But thanks to the internet and a flash applet, I was able to paint my first Pollock. Jackson Pollock by Miltos Manetas allows anyone to imagine they are in a hot paint stained studio, leaning over a large canvas with a dripping brush in one hand, paint bucket in the other and a cigarette lollipop in their mouth.

However, once I had a few stabs at creating my own drip-piece, I could really see the difficulty in validating that thrift-store painting an ex-trucker bought for five bucks in San Bernardino, California.
