Abstract Expressionism By: Christy Balewski & Sam Bush
What it is… Abstract Expressionism isa painting movement in which artists typically applied paint rapidly, and with force to their huge canvases in an effort to show feelings and emotions. non-geometrically, sometimes applying paint with large brushes, and looks as if to be an accident but is really quite planned.
History… European artists began moving to America during WW II.  The main result of the new American fascination with Surrealism was the emergence of Abstract Expressionism. Produced in New York roughly between 1940-1960. Jackson Pollack Ocean Greyness 1953
Made New York the center of the art world, and was often called the “New York School”. ,[object Object], independence from European surrealists  and other art trends. ,[object Object], art movement to influence artists  over seas, rather than vice versa.
Arshile Gorky was the artist to put this movement into motion, because his art ideals were obtained from Surrealism, Picasso, and Miro.  Emphasized the depiction of emotion’srather then objects. Paintings consisted of shapes, lines, and forms meant to create a separate reality from the visual world.
Hans Hoffman Rising Moon “What was to go on the canvas was not a picture, but an event.”  Critic- Harold Rosenberg
European Influence European Surrealists obtained their notion of the unconscious mind, from Sigmund Freud.  Many Americans at this time, derived Carl Jung’s theory- the “collective unconscious” holds that beneath ones private memories, is a store house of feeling and symbolic thoughts. With all the European influence, Abstract Expressionists sought universal themes within themselves.
Action Painting One of the two techniques for Abstract Expressionism was known as Action Painting. A style of painting which paint is spontaneously dripped, splashed or smeared onto the canvas, rather then being carefully applied. Willem de Kooning- Paris Review 1979
Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) Influenced by Mexican muralist painters, and Surrealism. Canvases were usually on the floor, or the wall where he dripped or poured on the paint. Used knives, sticks, or towels instead of brushes. Occasionally putting sand, broken glass, or other matter, into his paintings. Resulted in direct expression and “Action Painting”.
