Happy Birthday Jackson Pollock

Abstract painting is abstract. It confronts you. There was a reviewer a while back who wrote that my pictures didn't have any beginning or any end. He didn't mean it as a compliment, but it was."

The method of painting is the natural growth out of a need. I want to express my feelings rather than illustrate them.

-Jackson Pollock (January 28, 1912 – August 11, 1956)

Number 18, 1950
