This movement is also known as action painting as it includes intense, rapid brushstrokes and dripped and splattered paints on to a large canvas. It works with the artist and expresses their mind, emotions or what they see unrealistically. Pollock is a great example as his pieces are messy and random to other but to him it is actually planned. The style is also related to surrealism as it shows the need to emphasis the mind.
Making mistakes, is part of being an artist. Frustration is an excellent task master. Out of frustration and in your anger you decide…stuff it I’m just going to…(fill in the blank), and voila, suddenly something totally different happens.
