Jackson Pollock
Quotations



"The meaning of the artist is one who deals with the moment and eternity"

"Every good painter paints what he is."
 
"The painting has a life of its own."
 
"On the floor I am more at ease, I feel nearer, more a part of the painting, since this way I can walk around in it, work from the four sides and be literally 'in' the painting."
 
"The meaning of the artist is one who deals with the moment and eternity"
 
"When I am in my painting...I have no fears about making changes, destroying the image, etc., because the painting has a life of its own...When I lose contact with the painting the result is a mess. Otherwise there is a pure harmony, an easy give and take, and the painting comes out well."
 
"Painting is a state of being...self-discovery. Every good artist paints what he is."
