Critic of Pollock’s Art

Nevertheless, he also lauds Pollock’s genius in combining murals and drama as expressed by the use of Cubism, similar to that of Mexican muralists. After criticizing Pollock’s self-portrait, the critic then narrates the interesting and exciting journeys of Pollock into his life as an artist. Definitely, the mania that Pollock had on creating his work famous work Mural cannot be denied since he persevered day and night, relentlessly painting until he finished the work.The critic considers Pollock a rebel in expressing Abstract Art through his ( Pollock’s) extensive use of drippings that seem to be random but would converge later and produce a work of Art. In fact, Haber’s critic of Pollock’s works was satirical since asserted that his style was betweenImpressionism and Sunday Painting ( paragraph 3). Nevertheless, Haber salutes Pollock’s ability to scrawl which is an indicator of maturity in artists. The article also noted that this method of Pollock scared his future wife Lee Krasner.First, paint takes over its shallow space. It gets denser, a painting symmetry gets more obvious, and the technique gets varied and absorbing. A physicist has actually quantified the symmetry, not implausibly, with fractal geometry. When Pollock calls a painting Simmering Substance, one sees the heat but feels a refreshing cool.Despite these admirable comments of Haber, he still tries to psychoanalyze Pollock as he constantly inserts bits of the artist’s life in his article. Apparently, Pollock’s art is an expression of his grief and losses in life that can be attributed to his being an alcoholic. Similarly, Haber discussed the issue of depression by giving its operational definition according to the renowned psychologist and novelist Juliet Kristeva. It seems that Kristeva’s life has parallelism with Pollock’s. Haber then established the depression of Pollock and how it largely influenced his artworks.The article achieved abalance by citing the role of Lee Krasner in enhancing Pollock’s life as an artist. Aside from being a duty-bound wife struggling to cover his alcoholic husband, Haber relates that she was instrumental in introducing Pollock to Cubism. But the more refreshing part of the review was Haber’s analysis of how Pollock gained acceptance of the feminine side of art which is undoubtedly an influence of his wife.
