“Autumn Rhythm (No. 30)” by Jackson Pollock
GNAYgallery – The Jackson Pollock Experience
In preparation for today’s studio visit, you are dressed in jeans and a white t-shirt. As you wait to enter, you are served a double bourbon and a Marlboro (to smoke or put behind your ear)
You enter what appears to be a large drafty barn. A huge blank canvas lays on the floor in the middle of the room. FLASH. You now have a gallon of paint in one hand and a hardened paint brush in the other. FLASH. You gulp down another double bourbon and begin spattering and dripping paint on the canvas. As if possessed, you move rhythmically but methodically around the canvas. Drip, drip, splatter, drip. FLASH. Another double bourbon, but this time, it’s between your knees, as you hurl down a dark country road behind the wheel of a 1952 Olds convertible. FLASH. You see the tree, but it’s a little too late.
Thanks for coming – please ensure you have a safe ride home.
