Jackson Pollock

I really liked Pollock's oil painting entitled Stenographic Figure. As soon as I looked through some of his work, the bright colors drew me in. His works are layered heavily at times, and I liked how this one was clear and had empty spaces, even though the entire 3'4" by 4'8" canvas is of course covered, the spacing allows the painting to remain clearer than most of his other works. Also, the word stenographic refers to short hand so I understand why the title is what it is. Even though this is an extensive piece, the seems like for Pollock there's a lot of non-utilized space.
