Pollock's prodigy

Delible and indelible marks

About

After watching the spider through the kitchen window, she went to the bookshelf and consulted her book on Jackson Pollock.

She read: “ ... A reclusive and volatile personality, he was widely noted for his technique of pouring or splashing liquid paint on to a horizontal surface (‘drip technique’), enabling him to view and paint his canvases from all angles. It was also called ‘action painting’, since he used the force of his whole body to paint, often in a frenetic dancing style.”

She wondered if she’d discovered a Pollock prodigy.
