JACKSON POLLOCK b. JANUARY 28 1912
i've already posted here my belief in the importance of pollock in the second half of the 20th century, especially how he intersets w/warhol. i've never posted any of his "cut" paintings, the return of the repressed figure in abstract expressionism. it will never be certain where pollock would have gone in his later work but picasso certainly had a return of the repressed figure after cubism. it took the minimalists to get that damn thing out of the visual field, at least momentarily.
