Description of Jackson Pollock's painting "Autumn Rhythm"


Is this original, undoubtedly, American work of art so expensive? Many do not doubt the price of the painting product, for them it is an animated fairy tale.

Jackson Pollock - a strange artist, the unrecognized genius of Manhattan formed a special style called "flowing technique." The basis of the technique is mixing paint with broken glass or sand, and preference is given to sticks, knives and dustpan instead of a brush.

Working on huge canvases, the artist spreads them on a solid surface (on the floor) to feel resistance, sprays liquid paint from brushes or squeezes paint from a tube and puts it on the canvas. For the manner of performance, the master received the nickname "Jack Sprayer."

The author leaves behind the connection with reality, trying to portray only the state. The work "Autumn Rhythm" was presented at the Venice Festival and was an amazing success.

At first glance, nothing is depicted in the picture, just the presence of different color blots in the form of a web on the canvas. It goes beyond comprehensible art, where you can see objects, faces or natural phenomena and landscapes. This is something new - signs and symbols working in the stream of consciousness. Pollock pulled images from his subconscious.

The Autumn Rhythm canvas is imbued with energy and rhythmic lines. A beautiful picture does not have conciseness and accuracy. Pollock’s colorful spray technique creates an elaborate composition in the spirit of abstract abstractionism. It is not chaotic, as it seems and does not reproduce the forms of nature.

The painting lives an independent life and is a light harmony and a specific idea, which is expressed in the movements of the artist in an alliance with a dense stream of paint.
