Pollock's Inspiration?
Not sure whether Jackson Pollock was inspired subjects like this in nature!

Hypnotizing frame Ganesh! I wonder if a B&W version would retain/enhance the effect?

Interesting image Ganesh! The more i look, the more restless i become! My eyes wonder all over the frame, not able to stay at one place. Is it due to resized web version? Would full resolution image give a different experience? Have i trained myself to look for some anchor in the frame all these years?

Adithya,

Here it is. You decide!

Madhav, for me the experience is similar, however, there appears to be something which makes me see repeatedly different parts of the frame. Yes, full version *may* have slightly different appeal.

Hi Ganesh, Interesting question there once again. I'm ok with colored version for it is the closest formal representation of something living, growing, with it's own sense of order, not available to the brush or lense. Yes it is quite likely that Jackson Pollock would've drawn inspiration from things natural as the picture you posted. As abstractions his paintings might seem disorderly but up close none of them seems to violate canons of composition. The canvasses are balanced, one type of randomness evening out against another type in another part of the frame. In a way he recreates the living order of nature through impeccable composition of the random. Closer home Art of clutter for example in my opinion seems to work on the same lines. It is so engaging Ganesh, the buzz doesn't stop but my desk is shouting there's more work.
Thanks for keeping us all creatively engaged!

Utterly amazing simplicity n details of life out there!, Ganesh. Relating to Pollock's work makes it more philosophical n captivating as well. How great it must be feeling, watching a life size print!
Regards.
