Description for the presentation 2013-2014 in the National Museum of Modern Art

To produce what is known as a drip painting, the painter would move around, dripping or pouring paint onto the canvas using a wooden stick or brush. Pollock described his technique as follows: “On the floor I am more at ease. I feel nearer, more part of the painting, since this way I can walk around it, work from the four sides, and literally be in the painting, similar to the Indian sand painters of the West.” He was influenced by Navajo Indian rituals, and by a Surrealist taste for chance.
