About Echo (Number 25)

“Echo (Number 25)” is an abstract artwork created by Jackson Pollock in 1951, which is part of the Abstract Expressionism movement. The piece was made using enamel on canvas and measures 233 by 218 centimeters. It is held in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City, NY, US, embodying the genre of abstract art that Pollock is renowned for.

The artwork exhibits a dense web of fluid, black enamel strokes on a cream-colored background, a hallmark of Pollock’s “drip” technique. These seemingly chaotic yet intentional dribbles and splatters form a complex visual array, suggesting depth and movement, without presenting a recognizable subject. The high contrast between the black enamel and the underlying canvas generates a striking visual rhythm, characteristic of Pollock’s energetic painting style. The absence of traditional composition invites viewers to engage with the artwork on a purely visceral and psychological level, leaving the interpretation of its forms and spaces to the individual’s imagination.
