Pollack

2013
altered book, collage
9 x 10 1/4 in.
Pollack is based upon a book about Jackson Pollack's paintings. The book is sliced into strips then stacked on top of one another. After configuring the individual strips, they are taped together creating a perpetual replay of the abstracted content, scanning or taking in a quick read, of the entire book. The alternating current of peaks and valleys references both the admiration for Pollack and his falling out of favor during shifting art movements. Pollack also refers to the daily modulation of the stock market prices and art investments in an unstable economy.
