The Deep - Jackson Pollock

The Deep by Jackson Pollock was done in 1953, and its oil paint on a canvas. He began avoiding color in 1951, and started painting only in black. At first, I thought the painting was smoke, but reading more into it, Pollock wanted to create some sort of abyss either to be avoided or to get lost inside. It was said to be that the black in the painting was something dark and secretive and how the white was trying to hide it and never be looked into. I thought this painting was very interesting because of how he used the essentials colors black and white, I was actually drawn to it because of its colors. It seemed dark as if it was something evil that was truing to be hidden under the truth or good.
