Pollock's Black Paintings: A Closer Look

Dr. Michael Schreyach, Associate Professor in Art and Art History at Trinity University, and Dr. Stephanie Straine, Assistant Curator at Tate Liverpool and contributing author to the Jackson Pollock: Blind Spots exhibition catalogue, provide an in-depth look at Pollock's works during his black paintings period. The scholars give a brief talk about their research followed by a discussion moderated by Gavin Delahunty, Hoffman Family Senior Curator of Contemporary Art and curator of Jackson Pollock: Blind Spots. Schreyach's research explores the relationship between technique, imagery, and meaning in Pollock's black paintings, completed between 1951 and 1953. Straine examines the intersection of drawing and painting in Pollock's process.
