Jackson Pollock was an American painter and a major figure in the abstract expressionist movement. He was widely regarded for his technique of pouring or splashing liquid household paint onto a horizontal surface ("drip technique"), enabling him to view and paint his canvases from all angles. It was also called All-Over painting and "action painting", since he covered the entire canvas and used the force of his whole body to paint, often in a frenetic dancing style. Pollack used hardened brushes, sticks, and even basting syringes as paint applicators.
Pollock was a reclusive and volatile personality. He struggled with alcoholism for most of his life. When he painted, he often had a cigarette in his mouth and a bottle of alcohol at hand.
This series projects photos of the drip paintings of Jackson Pollock onto a model, Dafne, using a mini-beamer.
