The fifteenth offering in our new ART WALK Series features a painting by Jackson Pollock entitled "Convergence". From one medium to the next, artists express their use of colour. Inspired by Pollock, our dyer has successfully captured the excitement and complexity of the painting.
“Convergence,” a densely painted artwork filled with a childlike sense of freedom, and staggering complexity and sophistication was created by Jackson Pollock (1912 – 1956), the founder of Abstract Expressionism. Laying large canvases on his studio floor, Pollock challenged the tradition of using an easel and brush, pouring and dripping paint with dramatic physical movement, allowing his subconscious to dictate his motions. Influenced by Picasso, Miró, and the Surrealists, Pollock’s pioneering style and emotional works made him one of the most challenging and influential artists of the 20th century.
