Figurative Jackson Pollock

I really enjoy the work of Jackson Pollock. I’ve spoken to quite a few people over the years who are kind of dismissive of it, but whatever… That’s okay, whatever floats your boat. But I like his work. The large fields of color drips, patterns and shimmering textures, I do enjoy pure abstraction.

But Pollock’s somewhat figurative work does remain among my favorites. Like these primarily black and white images that are included in this post. So beautiful!
