Some Characteristics of Pollock’s Work<br /><ul><li>He worked on the floor.

He also used dripping, drawing, staining, and brushing.</li></li></ul><li>What makes his work so unique?<br />At the time, no one had produced work this big or painted the way that he painted. Since then, Jackson Pollock’s technique has never been mastered.<br />
How emotion influenced his work:<br />Jackson Pollock was under so much stress in his life that he used this emotion to create work. His paintings were pictures of how he felt as he painted. A lot of his paintings even had trash in them from his studio such as glass, keys, etc. The media didn’t even know at the time if his work could even be considered art.<br />
Most Interesting Thing I Learned<br />I thought it was cool that he didn’t always use brushes to paint with, but used sticks and other stuff.<br />
