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.
This stunning scarf is inspired by Jackson Pollock's Number 10 (1949). The abstract work includes oil, enamel, and aluminum paints covering the canvas in rhythmic strokes and gestural lines. The dull matte finish of the puddled aluminum paint contrasts starkly with the glistening black enamel, creating a dynamic sense of energy and motion.
