“The modern artist is living in a mechanical age and we have mechanical means of representing objects in nature such as the camera and the photograph. The modern artist, it seems to me, is working and expressing an inner world - in other words - expressing the energy, the motion and other inner forces.”
-Jackson Pollock on Abstract Expressionim, 1950.
