looking outwards

Jackson Pollock’s art is a main example of art generated by randomness. He was pioneer in abstract art, breaking boundaries of what artists can represent in an image. Pollock lets physics be the main player in his process and he was one of the firsts to make art with the canvas horizontally on the floor, while splattering paint on top. Andy Warhol made fun of this with his Oxidation painting. He had his assistants pee on a canvas that was laying horizontal to the floor. In this he also lets physics be a main player in the making of the work and is a diss to Pollock as pissing on the canvas has this meaning, while he also uses the same creative process to achieve the work.
