Jackson Pollock

A few words of inspiration

Practicing Pollock’s technique at first was seemingly pretty easy dripping industrial paint on canvas but as the painting got intense it seems as if it has a life of it own and the hand must match its demands and become more and more accurate in the movement of the wrist.

The colors start to blend in one another creating a  bold texture,

melting in one another, fighting each other for dominance.

The back  aches the arm is sore  and yet the movement can’t be stopped.

Not until the painting decides to let the colors rest.

Paul Jackson Pollock (January 28, 1912 – August 11, 1956) was an influential American painter and a major figure in the abstract expressionist movement. Technically, an important predecessor is surrealism, with its emphasis on spontaneous, automatic or subconscious creation.Jackson Pollock’s dripping paint onto a canvas laid on the floor is a technique that has its roots in the work of André Masson,Max Ernst and David Alfaro Siqueiros

He had a volatile personality and struggled with alcoholism all of his life.

Pollock died at the age of 44 in an alcohol-related, single-car crash[1].

About ArTour

My name is Dana Goldring. Ever since I was a teenager I was fascinated by art throughout all of its colors- writing, painting, drawing, sculpturing and more. As the years went by I stood in front of a cross road and as oppose to Frost who was forced to choose only one road I fought to march them both- I chose the road most traveled. But all along I kept practicing my art on low gear. ArTour was created to fulfill a youthful dream of being an artist who can support his own art. Winning any struggle along the way without obligations except for one: being true to your art. Hopefully this dream will grow and succeed with your help and Etsy as a world wide platform to show my art. ArTour is my way to explore with you different kinds of art. This blog will be used as a small art guide and also as a platform to show my own works. My goal as an artist is to experience a variety of movements through art and to translate these techniques into my own art. So come on lets Enjoy the ride!
