Jackson Pollock. Blind Spots
Jackson Pollock (191256) was one of the most radical, influential and provocative American artists of the twentieth century. In 1947 he developed a unique method of dripping trails of paint onto a canvas laid flat on the floor, pioneering the completely abstract all-over style known as abstract expressionism. This lavishly illustrated publication accompanies the first exhibition in over three decades of the next crucial phase of his work, referred to as the black pourings. Produced between 1951 and 1953, these paintings signalled a deliberate move away from the iconic drip technique and, most surprisingly, sometimes even featured figurative elements.
Fifty years after the appearance of his groundbreaking essay, Michael Fried has now produced a thorough reappraisal of the works especially for this publication. Essays by Jo Applin, Gavin Delahunty and Stephanie Straine further explore the paintings and their related drawings, regarded as Pollocks most important as a draughtsman, as well as rarely seen sculptures that further illuminate Pollocks experimentations with space, density and figuration.
