Artwork: Convergence


Perhaps his most famous work was a painting entitled Convergence, which was a collage of colors splattered on a canvas that created masterful shapes and lines that evoke emotions and attack the eye. The painting was created in 1952, and is oil on canvas.Jackson Pollock's style of painting, as exemplified by Convergence, is an important, innovative development in the history of painting. At the time of the painting, the United States took very seriously the threat of Communism and the cold war with Russia. Convergence was the embodiment of free speech and freedom of expression. Pollock threw mud in the face of convention and rebelled against the constraints of societies oppressions. It was everything that America stood for all rapped up in a messy, but deep package. This is the painting what i really like it, the abstract artwork use by action painting and dipping techniques, this is very hard working methods.He really considered the choice of the colors. i think this painting,he used the black and white oil painting for the background, then considering how the bright color can combine with the black and white , the position of the colors are important. afterward , he also used the techniques to painting on the canvas, the artwork is done, it dose not feel messy on the artwork, it just  kind of beauty and chaos, the chaos is amazing.
