About Painting - Jackson Pollock

“When I am in my painting, I’m not aware of what I’m doing.  It is only after a sort of get-acquainted period that I see what I have been about.  I have no fears of making changes, destroying the image, etc., because the painting has a life of its own.  I try to let it come through.  It is only when I lose contact with the painting that the result is a mess.  Otherwise, there is pure harmony, and easy give and take, and the painting comes out well.”  Artist Jackson Pollock
