Revisiting Pollock

Last week I had the pleasure and honor of making the frames for the Jackson Pollock exhibit at Azusa Pacific University . Here are a few photos, via Jim Daichendt, who is a professor of art history and exhibitions director at APU. The exhibit will be up for one more week, so check it out .

Here's some info about the exhibit :

On October 4-11, Azusa Pacific University hosts an art exhibit featuring a collection of paintings attributed to renowned modern artist Jackson Pollock. Owner Erich Neumeth obtained the collection more than 40 years ago, but has never exhibited these paintings―until now. They have sparked discussions over authenticity from artists and collectors alike. The October exhibit will center on Pollock’s style and technique and allow the audience to engage in the work and decide for themselves.

In a university setting, this process of visually engaging with works of art enhances the theoretical and practical instruction within the classroom setting. The opportunity to view works attributed to an artist of Pollock’s stature intensifies the richness of the dialog students and guests experience in our galleries. We hope you will benefit from this experience and gain deeper understanding and appreciation for Pollock’s work.
