Pollock’s Sculptures Resurface

via ARTnews

It is really strange that I found this today. Recently I was talking to one of my co-workers about how I dislike Jackson Pollock’s paintings. How is throwing splashes of paint on a canvas considered art? How did it possibly make as much money as it did? He disagreed with me saying that Pollock had a method to his paintings, you have to really get lost in the painting to see what it is all about. Anyway… Here are some more examples of his work, but not the paintings. I can see the resemblance.

Untitled, ca. 1949, plaster and paint on wire, is the sculpture that looks most like a “Pollock.”
