About this artwork

In 1946, American abstract painter Jackson Pollock created 'Shimmering Substance'. This piece was one of Pollock's initial ventures into a fully non-representational style, breaking away from any suggestion of figuration. Pollock bypassed the traditional brush, opting to squeeze paint straight from the tube onto the canvas. He then used a palette knife to shape the looping swirls dancing on the edges. Interestingly, Pollock opted for lighter hues for this piece, a nod to the countryside setting of East Hampton, New York, his new home since the prior year.

About the artist

Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) was an American abstract expressionist painter. He was a major force in the abstract expressionist movement, and his unique style of drip painting revolutionised the art world. Pollock was born in Cody, Wyoming, and grew up in Arizona and California. He was heavily influenced by Native American art and Surrealism. He was married to artist Lee Krasner and had a tumultuous personal life. Pollock's work is characterised by its energetic, chaotic and seemingly random composition.
