The master of chaos

Jackson Pollock’s “One: Number 31”, painted 1950.

Jackson Pollock was a major force in the abstract expressionism movement, and a dark and moody maverick.  He was undeniably an innovative artistic genius and more.  His technique has been carefully studied and it’s been determined that some works contain properties of mathematical fractals, and that the works become more fractal-like chronologically.  Some goes as far to speculate that he may have been aware of the nature of chaotic motion, and through his paintings was creating what he perceived as perfect representations of mathematical chaos- and all this more than 10 years before Chaos Theory was discovered.  So much for the critics that casually dismiss his work as mere paint drippings.

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.
