"Convergence"

Jackson Pollock - Oil

Present in the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, this is another powerful instance of Pollock’s brand of Abstract Expressionism. Made as a follow-up to his series of drip paintings, with the intent to deviate, Pollock started this piece in black and white. He wasn’t convinced, so he added colour. While initially it was subject to debate, “Convergence” is remembered as a significant work in the face of Post-War America. The Congress for Cultural Freedom sponsored this work, believing that his deviation from conventional form was harmless. Ironically enough, Pollock only went on to fuel freedom of speech and embody the rebellion against American Nationalism’s oppressive measures. However, critics of this viewpoint like Yve-Alain Bois protested by putting forward how Pollock let gravity and natural movement dictate the fate of all colours that he chose. They believed that singularly politicizing or conspiring meaning behind his paintings negated the ethos of his techniques. In 1964, Springbok Editions released a jigsaw puzzle, based on this work, which is often regarded as the most difficult puzzle ever made.
