Explosion! The Legacy of Jackson Pollock

Under Hoffman’s tutelage Kaprow began to develop an expressive style of action painting, based on real landscapes and figures, which was to be a precursor to his “happenings”.

If the end had to come, it came at the wrong time. In retrospect, most of the Surrealist painters appear to have derived from a psychology book or from each other: If so, it is an exceedingly important step and in its superior way offers a solution to the complaints of those who would have us put a bit of life into art.

And the i the fifties connection, rather than being climactic, was, in a way, inglorious. This discovery has led to remarks that his art gives the impression of going on forever—a true insight that suggests how Pollock ignored the confines of the rectangular field in favor of a continuum going in all directions simultaneously, beyond the literal dimensions of legacj work.

This strange combination of extreme individuality and selflessness makes the work remarkably potent but also indicates a probably larger frame of psychological reference. And if we object to the difficulty of complete comprehension, we are asking too little of the art.

You can read more here. What we have, then, is art that tends to lose itself out of bounds, tends to fill our world with itself, pololck that in meaning, looks, impulse seems to break fairly sharply with thhe traditions of painters back to at least the Greeks.


The space of these creations is not clearly palpable as such.

THE LEGACY OF JACKSON POLLOCK by Stephanie Carlo on Prezi

They miss the point, and misunderstanding is bound to follow. By the mids the term “happening” had entered the hip vocabulary of the time. Jackson Pollock, untitled, ca.

But from Impressionism up to, say, Gorky, the idea of an “order” to these markings was explicit enough.

Pollock’s poklock destruction of this tradition may well. And for this reason any allusions to Pollock’s being the maker of giant textures are completely incorrect.

We saw maprow his example the possibility of an astounding freshness, a sort of ecstatic blindness. In the last seventy-five years the random play of the hand upon kapros canvas or paper has become increasingly important. They are becoming part of textbooks. The progression to the “happening” was due in part to the influence of Kaprow’s former teacher, the avant-garde composer John Cage.

This was his conscious artistry at work, and it makes him a part of the traditional community of painters. Later this week A Bigger Splash: Reversing the above procedure, the painting is continued out into the room.

It may be that our need to identify with the process, the making of the whole affair, prevents a concentration on the specifics of before and behind so important in a more traditional art.

Hence, although up on the wall, these marks surround us as they did the painter at work, so strict is the correspondence achieved between his impulse and the resultant art. People will be delighted or horrified, critics will be confused or amused, but these, I am certain, will be the alchemies of the s.

The painterly aspects of his contemporaries, such as Motherwell, Hofmann, de Kooning, Rothko, and even Still, point up at one moment a deficiency in him and at another moment a liberating feature. Tuesday 01 January There was a development, a shift of focus, from painting as an art object and as representation, to the process behind the work, to the ideas that generate art, and performative aspects. What we felt then was genuine enough, but our tribute, if it was that at all, was a limited one.


Museum of Osaka University. But even so, this space is an allusion far more vague than even the few inches of space-reading a Cubist work affords. The innovations are accepted. But some of the implications inherent in these new values are not as futile as we all began to believe; this kind of painting need not be called the tragic style.

Not satisfied with the suggestion through paint of our other senses, we shall utilize the specific substances of sight, sound, movements, people, odors, touch. And, more than the others associated with the Surrealists, such real talents as Picasso, Klee, and Miro belong to the stricter discipline of Cubism; perhaps this is why their work appears to us, paradoxically, more free.

Painting After Performance opens at Tate Modern. We remembered van Gogh and Rimbaud.

His heroic stand had been futile. Allan Kaprow is survived by his second wife, Coryl Crane, and by two sons and two daughters. In Europe, they exhibited together with artists from the nebulous artist group Zero, also featured in Explosion! There are two alternatives. In fact, only the writers among them—and only in a few instances—enjoyed any success in this poloock.

We do not enter a painting of Pollock’s in any one place or hundred places. But there was another, morbid, side to his meaningfulness. Yves Klein, Anthropometry, Princess Helena,
