Quote of the Day
In being so overwhelmingly non-geometrical, Pollock retires to a locus of remote control, placing the tool in the hand as much apart as possible from the surface to be painted. In regularly exiling his brush and not allowing any plastically used tool to convey medium to the surface, the painter charges the distance between his agency and his work with as much chance as possible—in other words, the fluidity of the poured and scattered paint places maximum pressure against conscious design. And yet the design is conscious, the seemingly uncomposable, composed.
