JACKSON POLLOCK - ON HIS ART
"Every good artist paints what he is."
"I'm very representational some of the time, and a little all of the time. But when you're painting out of your unconscious, figures are bound to emerge." 3."The modern artist is working with space and time, and expressing his feelings rather than illustrating." 4."I don't work from drawings. I don't make sketches and drawings and colour sketches into a final painting."
"Today painters do not have to go to a subject matter outside of themselves. Most modern painters work from a different source. They work from within."
"The strangeness will wear off and I think we will discover the deeper meanings in modern art." 7."It [abstract art] should be enjoyed just as music is enjoyed – after a while you may like it or you may not." 8.In response to the question "How do you know when you're finished?", Pollock replied "How do you know when you're finished making love?"
