How Pollock used Time and Motion to create his Paintings

How Pollock used Time and Motion to create his Paintings

Action painting was a system of artistic expression developed as a style of a movement in during the Second World War and post war America, and in particular in the nation’s largest city, New York . The movement came to be known as the Abstract Expressionism movement, and the art style emphasizes on the work of painting, instead of commitment to the final work.   This system of art challenged the traditional systems of paint as it relied on the use of synthetic resin paints, and Jackson Pollock did this by laying his canvas of the floor, and through the use of hard brushes, sticks, and other materials such syringes, applied paint. Hence, action painting focus more of the process, than on the final work, and the artist becomes intricately connected to the painting and the artwork.  This style of artwork is relevant to the world of art, and artistic expression, though it has collected many critics alike.

Time and motion expressed in Pollock’s art expresses experiment, new ideas, and amongst others.  The art does not seek beauty; rather it emerges and demands some reaction and response to the viewer. The more a painter paints using this style, the more they begin to notice that it oozes aesthetics, and realistic images can be developed easily than the absolute abstract painting, and this means that a thought provoking artwork style results works well. The implication of the statement above is that an absolute abstract artwork seemed more of a learned technique, but the other wild one is a desire that is developed deep from inside.  Further the time and motion as ended up being an element of his final work, as the style of painting neglected any other point of emphasis and concentrated unconsciously on the production of an intricate knitted patterns that showed Jackson’s movements and gestures while working on the canvas. The paints were produced in a thinned way so that they produced a consistent flow readily. To reiterate an earlier point, he used sticks, dried-out brushes, basting syringes, and he worked from all edges, and developed a side-to-side web of looping lines.  He was quoted as saying that working on the floor made him more comfortable, and gave him a feeling to be near and be part of the work, and in the way he painted, he could walk around it, and paint well from every side of the frame, and in some literal sense be part of the work.
