Jackson Pollock’s dripped paintings made me look and conceive art in a different way. Before I would look at one of these types of modern works and consider it so simple that even my own self could construct the same idea. It was not until I actually sat down and tried to create something similar in appearance that I soon realized that it is not as simple as I once considered it to be. It is intriguing to me that Pollock avoids any point of emphasis or identifiable parts within the whole canvas of his later works such as the drip paintings. As I dug deeper into some research I learned that many of his designs had no relation to the shape or size of the canvas and with some of his works they were even trimmed to suit the image. Pollock’s works “broke the ice” and abstract art evolved bringing the art world into a new light.
