Friday, May 1, 2009 Celebrating Drips

Jackson Pollock mural, South La Brea Avenue, photographed Friday, May 1, 2009

It's the "art wall" at Miauhaus Studios 1201 South La Brea, here in Los Angeles. And yes, it's Jackson Pollock.  There was that Ed Harris film about him and in November 2006, Pollock's "No. 5, 1948" became the world's most expensive painting an undisclosed buyer bought the thing from Hollywood's David Geffen, for a hundred forty million.  Oddly enough, Pollock's "drip period" was from 1947 to 1950 then Pollock just abandoned the drip style entirely.

Too late Pollock had become a legend.  And Miauhaus Studios is far beyond hip founded in Paris, it's an art gallery and shooting spaces and exhibition areas, often filled with celebrities for private events and fashion shows and such. So forget it you don't belong there. But Pollock is outside, for everyone.  But they may not get it.
