    "It is what his imitators could never do, and why there are no successful Pollock forgeries: they always end up looking like...spaghetti, whereas Pollock--in his best work--had an almost preternatural control over the total effect of those skeins and receding depths of paint. In them, the light is always right. Nor are they absolutely spontaneous; he would often retouch the drip with a brush."

    Yes, some of them are ugly... Some of them I like. Im sure most of you will hate.

    Whoops, sorry about that i spelled his name wrong, its Jackson Pollock.

    those photos do no justice. gotta see some of his work in person. so many layers...and the movie basicly illustrates how alchol just fucks shit up basicly.....what else is new.

    i saw his show at the NYC MOMA a year or two ago.

    really amazing.. have to see them in person. i think scale is very important in them to.. their a bit much.. i dont think i could handle one in my living room..

    make me feel like im going mad.

    they had an interesting installation at the show.

    they redid a room as if it were his studio space in this wooden shack on the beach if i remember.. and had this projection onto the ground or something with hectic intense jazz playing loudly as he did.
    kind of put you into his shoes pretty well.

    glad to see more variety on the bench since ive been gone.
