Jackson Pollock (Jack the Dripper) – Made huge paintings by dripping or flinging paint. Started AE and was one of the most famous of his era. Started the idea of getting fame because of art.
Cy Twombly – Also very famous. Went back to the roots of Pollock and instead used juvenile marks. We were shown images of him also using long sticks to make lines and colors.
Tom Wolfe writes about the art world using fun and humor in his book “The Painted Word”. When I read the part of the book I enjoyed the sense and style of writing he used to describe the art world.
Andy Warhol is a famous pop artist and did crazy off the wall things. One video we watched in class was of him eating a hamburger. Which actually makes me hungry right now. I’m going to go get one.
