With the proper researches that i did, i had a few references artist in mind. Mainly they are Jackson Pollock, Peter Foucault, Sol LeWitt, a little bit of Andy Warhol and Alexander Cozens.
Lets start with Jackson Pollock! Unrestricted lines! Curves! Strength! Flow! Action!
They are mainly created using Chinese rice paper, Copier Paper and with Chinese ink and Poster colour.
Monoprinting when i didnt have any reference artists in mind. Just doing whatever that came to mind.
This is a gallery of automated techniques and monoprints that i did earlier! As they are all in A3 size, i wont be able to put much of the original prints in my sketchbook and it would be a waste to not document these.
One of the artist that impresses me the more i know about him is Jackson Pollock.
These are the works that i really like from Jackson Pollock. The depth and the movement that can be seen from these random lines. I will definitely try this.
Other than the very dense pieces like above, these were a series that caught my attention too! Its not very complicated but with this limited amount of strokes and splashes, the effect and emotion that is created is very impactful.
While reading the interviews found in “Jackson Pollock Works|Writing|Interviews”, i found something very useful.
The sentence he said that hit me really hard.And something that i feel that we should consider about.
Info from these 2 wonderful books:
-No Limits, Just Edges: Jackson Pollock Paintings on Paper organised by Susan Davidson
-Jackson Pollock Works|Writings|Interviews by Nancy Jachec
p.s. The featured image is a lovely photo of Jackson Pollock and his wife(Lea Krasner) in his studio.
I realised that while researching artists on the internet is useful, with so many information around, i wasn’t able to get anywhere far with it. Hence, since we have the wonderful resources right at our doorstep, i made a trip down to the library to search for some books in the artists.
