Every time you click your mouse you change colour. Hence my cryptic hint about a mouse.

This offering from "Jack the Dripper" cost two million dollars (US) in 1973 [:0].



It is called "Blue Poles", (should be "regurgitated pizza" :))

"2nd November 2006
NEW YORK (AFP) - A work by US abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock has been bought in a private sale for some 140 million dollars, the highest sum ever paid for a painting, according to reports.

 The painting in Pollock's trademark drip style belonged to Hollywood entertainment magnate David Geffen and went for "about 140 million dollars," The New York Times quoted unnamed art experts involved in the sale as saying.

The price would be the highest sum ever known to have been paid for a painting, exceeding the 135 million dollars paid in June for Gustav Klimt's "Adele Bloch-Bauer I," a work now on public display in New York.

The experts, who spoke on condition of anonymity, identified the buyer as David Martinez, a Mexican financier, who the Times described as obsessively private and a mega-buyer of modern and contemporary art.

Staff at Martinez' New York company, Fintech Advisory Inc, refused to comment on the report, while a spokesman for Sotheby's auction house, reported to have brokered the deal, said details of private sales were not disclosed.

Geffen could not be immediately reached for comment.

The painting, entitled "No. 5, 1948," is a tangled composition of browns and yellows and is unusually large, measuring some 1.2 by 2.5 metres (four by eight feet).

It is in Pollock's distinctive drip style, in which the American artist laid canvases on the floor or up against a wall and poured paint over them, creating abstract, fractal traces overlaying each other."

somthing tells me that you dont need much painter's skill in this kind of painting department...

How much experience does one need to splatter paint to perfection?

The place where my son studies karate is in a warehouse/art gallery.  These are the kinds of paintings that are displayed.  I've never understood them.  I've looked at these paintings twice a week for months now.  I'm finally starting to see actual 'pictures'.  Now I'm left wondering if the intent of the artist was for the audience to see what it is I'm seeing.  If it is, then he just has a filthy mind, deep down in the gutter filth.  If it's not his intent, what does that say about me?

LOL !!...what it tells us about you mam is that you're just super lovely and wonderful too !!.....with a filthy down trodden foul mouthed mind !!..LOL


I think you might have hit the nail on the head there mam. I think art that is abstract and expressionistic in it's style is fundamentally a display of the artists emotion on canvas...they may have pictures on their mind when creating it and it is this which fuels the application of the medium.

I would imagine that they would not expect you or I to feel the same about their picture..but...if you DO feel something...then I suspect the picture has worked .
If the Artist can explain the meaning behind it then we can also appreciate the artists perspective too....as I suppose we can with anybody else's interpretation.
Though, quite often, Artists hate to talk about their work...perhaps because they may see it as too revealing. They would say...it can not be explained ....except that the painting is the explanation....oh gawwwwwwwwwd !!...nearly 5am...not a good time to become an art philosopher !.

These types of images have a good longevity as one I could assume look at them from different angles and always see something new....even years later on.
