Convergence by Jackson Pollock

"Here I saw a man who had both broken all the traditions of the past and unified them, who had gone beyond cubism, beyond Picasso and surrealism, beyond everything that had happened in art....his work expressed both action and contemplation." Alfonso Ossorio

Derided as "Jack the Dripper" it's easy upon cursory examination to be dismissive of Jackson Pollock and his work. But there is a hell of a lot more going on than some East Coast FauxBo slinging paint around, what it is I'm not exactly sure, but I dig it.
