Jackson Pollock said regarding his art "When I am in a painting, I'm not aware of what I'm doing. It is only after a sort of 'get acquainted' period that I see what I have been about. I have no fears about making changes, destroying the image, etc, because the painting has a life of its own. I try to let it come through. It is only when I lose contact with the painting that the result is a mess. Otherwise there is pure harmony, an easy give and take, and the painting comes out well." He also said, "The method of painting is the natural growth out of a need. I want to express my feelings rather than illustrate them." Describing his painting on the floor "On the floor I am more at ease, I feel nearer, more a part of the painting, since this way I can walk around it, work from the four sides and literally be in the painting." Agreed upon by many critics as one of the greatest painters in the United States in the 20th century, Jackson Pollock would devise a new art, free from brushes and easels, where his body and mind worked to produce an abstract image. It was his early studies in art that led him to his discovery and his influence can still be seen in America’s avant-garde art movements. Jackson Pollock was the first American abstract painter to be taken seriously in Europe. It was not until 1947 that Pollock began his "action" paintings, influenced by Surrealist ideas of "psychic automatism" (direct expression of the unconscious). Pollock would fix his canvas to the floor and drip paint from a can using a variety of objects to manipulate the paint.
