I love Pollack and much modern art because it presses the edge of the envelope of what is art.

It abandons the visual for the abstract and visceral.

Pollack and his ilk pull us out of the pretty "pictures" into a world of mathematics and proportion and chaos and relationship and color.

And we are still moved!

Abstract and visceral can go hand in hand w/ visual and “pretty picture” creating breathtaking works of art that both moves us and presses the edges of the envelope!

Andrew Wyeth or even photography of Ansel Adams come to mind.
