About Jackson Pollock paintings..

A friend and I were talking about Jackson Pollock paintings and in how he might've intentionally used body forms in his abstract paintings. This is seems logical, Jackson Pollock studied surrealism and tried to tap into the unconscious mind with the use of imagery in lines. It's interesting to look into his paintings and see underneath the poured and splattered paint that there is imagery there of faces and body parts. (see attachments and judge for yourself). In researching on Jackson Pollock, I found he was a heavy drinker and was constantly tring to better himself as a painter. What is more interesting, is that during his 3 months being soper, he created the most wonderful abstract paintings of his career..Lavender Mist, No.5 is the most recognized painting. I just thought it was interesting and wanted to share this information. Thank you, Friend-D.S. for bringing this up for conversation and awareness on one of my favorite artists.
