“It doesn't make much difference how the paint is put on as long as something has been said. Technique is just a means of arriving at a statement.” Jackson Pollock

He was dubbed "Jack the Dripper" by Time magazine in the 1950s for his revolutionary painting technique of working directly over un-stretched canvas using freely applied paint straight out of the can. While alive, he was as controversial with the art world as with the general public. His art was condemned as degenerate, something any monkey could reproduce, and as “unpalatable as yesterday’s macaroni.” Despite all those doubts, today Pollock is considered the greatest American painter of the last century.

Rather than being an historical account of Abstract Expressionism or action painting, our JACKSON exhibition concerns Pollock as "product" and legend. The exhibition focuses on both his painting style and highly destructive behavior. He had been a turbulent soul whose life was dominated by alcoholism.

This multi-media exhibit shows contemporary works by artists who were influenced by Pollack’s paintings and his life. It will also have video excerpts from Pollock, the movie, YOUTUBE.COM downloads other perspectives about the great and troubled artist.
