Trip to Abstract Expressionism exhibit at the Royal Academy

With the After Modernism constellation group we visited the Abstract Expressionism exhibition at the Royal Academy in London. The vist was incredibly informative in putting into context the research and analysis we’ve done on many of the works featured in the exhibition.

One particular work that was interesting to see again was Jackson Pollock’s Mural which I’d seen before in the Guggenheim in Venice, it was interesting to see the work in a different context with a different group of people. It’s a piec of work I particularly like, I prefer Pollocks more gestural work to his drip paintings, the shapes and the movement of the colour seem to have more of a quality to them.
