Channeling Pollock

Jackson Pollock’s life represented the anguish an artist endures as he breaks through his own boundaries to reveal his true creative voice.  I made this painting in the image of Pollock’s signature style because I wanted to feel his process and honor his accomplishment.  (I transgressed by stretching the canvas before applying paint – Pollock dripped onto un-stretched canvas.)  Nevertheless, it was an exhilarating experience – this thing is heavy with paint!
