Jackson Pollock, “ 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.” Valerie Kirschbaum writes in her book Goodbye Gutenberg, “ The Impressionists explored new realms of emotional experience, realms that been excluded by a unidimensional way of painting. Likewise, writers today will explore new realms of emotional experience, realms that until now have been excluded by a black and white, unidimensional, Gutenberg way of writing.” http://www.goodbyegutenberg.com /
