Unusual piece, VZ...looks like this is a rare example of where Jacko's "art" was not entirely accidental or cynical...
vz-nostalgia: I truly believe he thought he was original in what he was doing. smile Ah, so naive. smile

It expressed enough to say "Jackson Pollock". smile
vz-nostalgia: smile This existed millions of years before any Jackson Pollocks, Ms. Suzanne. smile I wonder if he's ever realized that he's a plagiarizer. smile
Pollock?? That's a sort of fish isn't it?
vz-nostalgia: If you dip the tale of a live fish into a can of paint and throw the fish on a white canvas, you wouldn't tell the difference, Bill. smile

I thought that was chicken... smile
vz-nostalgia: your mind works in misterious ways, Ti. smile
How many paint cans did you use...? smile
vz-nostalgia: one can of sunshine, one can of blue sky, one can of the frosty breath of an autumn morning... smile

A fine observation and idea! Yes, you are right- nature art a la JP- and this sun-lit mess of twigs, branches, and leaves makes me curious what might be behind it- I suggest a modern towerlike building that doesn't want to compete with this wild chaos! Pollock would have been pleased of this photograph and he would have wished to rummage through this tree as we like doing with our eyes!

Philine: Pollock would have been pleased of this photograph...
VZ: I think, just opposite, he would be pissed off big time, Ms. Philine. smile Because this overwhelmingly points out that he was just an imitator not an innovator, as he thought he was. smile

what's behind the tree branches is not what intrigues me the most but who's the one behind the camera lenses...smile
one thing i'm sure about is that he's not inexpressive...

by the way, are they acacia trees?
vz-nostalgia: I have no idea what trees are these, Ms. KA. Why does it matter to you? smile
I'm trying to figure out why you posted this picture, Viktor ... Normally you do seem to care some about the aesthetics of your pictures, before you add the nostalgia/mystery bit. But sure, this one resembles a Pollock painting ... Maybe you just saw the documentary about the old woman selling one of his pictures? Quite interesting and frightening at the same time ...

Thomas: Normally you do seem to care some about the aesthetics of your pictures...
VZ: Some? smile I guess you foound none here. smile
Thomas: Maybe you just saw the documentary about the old woman selling one of his pictures?
VZ: Documentary? Nah… I saw it live at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington D.C. smile A lady, apparently an art guide for the museum, was “selling” one of the Pollock’s paintings (well, not the painting itself, of course) to the crowd of the blue hair ladies and gentlemen (from the retirement home, I guess). Her language was very eloquent (a graduate of the Art History Department, I bet). I stood there, listening to her, smiling and shaking my head: there was so much watered down philosophical/aesthetic bullshit in what she was saying, as if she was building a monumental foundation for the house of cards, which is quite typical for the art critics and folks who write about art. smile The funniest thing was that many of the bluehairs were diligently writing down what she was saying in their notebooks. smile Truth be told, Pollock’s paintings were not the worst ones at the museum. smile
Mother natures art is so much more pleasing to my eye smile
vz-nostalgia: She's a great inspiration for artists as well as for scientists, Ms. Linda.

I can almost see the bright blue sky behind it...can't see any Pollock's...sorry for my ignorance smile
vz-nostalgia: :
Eva: can't see any Pollock's...sorry for my ignorance
VZ: You're must be Pollock-blind, Ms. Eva. smile Billions of people in this world don't see Pollock and still live a full interesting life. So, don't be upset, you didn't lose much, Ms. Eva. Not knowing/seeing Polock is like mssing a pinch of one spice, say, ginger, in your favorite dish: you know it's not there, but everyone else will hardly notice. smile
