WPC: Life Imitates Art

Pollock iv

After Convergence 13.2.16

In this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge Sheri asks us to “…find inspiration in a piece of art. Then, imitate it.” The painting I have chosen is Convergence by Jackson Pollock painted in 1952 and now residing in the Albright-Knox Gallery in Buffalo New York.

Convergence – Jackson Pollock – 1952

“I have no fears about making changes, destroying the image, etc. because the painting has a life of its own. I try to let it come through.” Jackson Pollock.

Homage to Pollock 13.2.16

“It seems to me that the modern painter cannot express his age, the airplane, the atom bomb, the radio, in the old forms of the Renaissance or any other past culture. Each age finds its own technique.”
Jackson Pollock, 1951
