- About the work
"On the floor I am more at ease. I feel nearer, more a part of the painting…"
Jackson Pollock grew up in the mid-west but came to New York to work and moved to Long Island in 1945. He took the canvas from the easel and laid it on the floor. His movements around the canvas are recorded for posterity by the thin industrial gloss that dripped from his brushes. His technique was called drip painting - or action painting - and was a version of abstract expressionism. Wooden Horse, however, incorporates an obvious figurative element: a horse's head made of wood, making the work unique in Pollock's oeuvre.
