[2015] Kathryn Mullings: Action Painting

Action painting was developed as part of the Abstract Expressionism movement that took place in post–World War II America, especially in New York, during the 1940s through until the early 1960s.

Action Paintingwith Jackson Pollock

Action painting places the emphasis on the act of painting rather than the final work as an artistic object.

Action painting, created by Jackson Pollock, is a style in which paint is spontaneously splattered, smeared or dripped onto canvas.

Jackson Pollock challenged traditional conventions of painting by using synthetic resin-based paints, laying his canvas on the floor, and using hardened brushes, sticks, and even basting syringes for applying paint.
