Jackson Pollock quotes :
I have no fear of making changes, destroying the image, etc., because the painting has a life of its own.Jackson Pollock
New needs need new techniques. And the modern artists have found new ways and new means of making their statements... the modern painter cannot express this age, the airplane, the atom bomb, the radio, in the old forms of the Renaissance or of any other past culture.Jackson Pollock
The strangeness will wear off and I think we will discover the deeper meanings in modern art.Jackson Pollock
