This post on Pollock has almost as many pictures of him painting in his studio then actual paintings. I think his work has to be appreciated close up because it is all about texture, layering and colors. They way he paints is an important aspect of his style because he broke conventions about what a painting is supposed to be and was harshly criticized for it. I like to see the progression of how his paintings changed and what eventually held his focus was the more abstract.
Georgia O’Keefe has always been my favorite artist because she and I share the same birthday. She captures the essences of those things that seem simple and pure, but are actually complex and common if you only change the way you look at it.
