In Conversation with Barnett Newman and Jackson Pollock - Jina Wallwork

 

The artists Jackson Pollock and Barnett Newman were friends. If they both could have a good conversation, then their verbal expression is capable of blending together. Their expression can merge and interact, without a fight for dominance. If this is possible in a conversation, it is also possible with other aspects of their expression. Their artistic expression also should blend together. In this piece I was trying to find the point where their artistic expressions blend. I'm the casual observer of a conversation between the two. In some ways this conversation simply has changed its language. A series of words and tones has become a visual conversation. Their visual language merges together in an image.
