About Untitled (O'Connor-Thaw 770)

The artwork entitled “Untitled (O’Connor-Thaw 770)” is a creation of the renowned American artist Jackson Pollock, dating approximately from 1946 to 1947. This piece is executed using Indian ink and other inks on paper and is relatively modest in size with dimensions of 22.5 x 30.2 cm. It is part of the Abstract Expressionism movement, yet it is categorized within the figurative genre, which indicates that despite its abstract nature, it contains recognizable forms or figures.

The artwork displays a chaotic and energetic composition with a dense overlay of lines and forms. The lack of a clear focal point encourages the viewer’s eye to travel across the paper’s surface continuously. Although the work is rooted within the abstract expressionist movement, known for its emphasis on spontaneous or subconscious creation, this piece paradoxically contains figural elements that suggest a nod to representation amidst the abstraction. Dark, bold ink strokes establish organic shapes and amidst these, one can discern semblances of creatures and possibly mythological forms, offering a glimpse into Pollock’s inner world or thought process during the artwork’s creation. The interplay of the abstract with the figurative creates a dynamic tension, inviting interpretation and analysis from the observer.
