David Howell Pollock's Ghosts Earrings

About the Artist

Jackson Pollock's mythic reputation rests largely on the artistic breakthrough of his large action paintings, made between 1947 and 1951, as well as on his dramatic life and death. Pollock's complex imagery derived from diverse sources including Navajo sand painting, Asian calligraphy, and personal revelations stemming from his psychotherapy sessions. From the 1930s to the early 1940s, Pollock's style evolved from a dark, turbulent form of regionalism to a more freely rendered abstract expressionism. During the next decade Pollock developed his monumentally influential "poured" paintings by dripping and flinging intricate layers of paint over his canvases.

These red, blue, and black earrings are inspired by the paint that did not make it onto Jackson Pollock's canvases. On entering his studio, one is asked to change into foam slippers. It is immediately apparent why: the floor is covered with paint splats, drips, and languid coils—known as "Pollock's ghosts."
