Nice to see Google acknowledge the birthday of Jackson Pollock on the homepage today.
Pollock was, of course, a force for disruption in the art world in the 50's, rejecting conventions of fine art with a unique approach.
'I continue to get further away from the usual painter's tools such as easel, palette, brushes, etc. I prefer sticks, trowels, knives and dripping fluid paint or a heavy impasto with sand, broken glass or other foreign matter added.'
In true disruptor fashion, he returned to figurative work in the mid 50's once abstract expressionism became mainstream.
