Zitat aus jackson-pollock.org
«Jackson Pollock made it possible for American painting to compete with European modernism by applying modernism’s logic to new problem. He created a new scale, a new definition of surface and touch, a new syntax of relationships among space, pigment, edge, and drawing, displacing hierarchies with an unprecedented and powerful and fabulously intricate self-generating structure.»
