Quotations by Jackson Pollock

Bums are the well-to-do of this day. They didn’t have as far to fall.

The method of painting is the natural growth out of a need. I want to express my feelings rather than illustrate them. Technique is just a means of arriving at a statement. … I can control the flow of paint: there is no accident, just as there is no beginning and no end.

When I say artist I don’t mean in the narrow sense of the word — but the man who is building things — creating molding the earth — whether it be the plains of the west — or the iron ore of Penn. Its all a big game of construction — some with a brush — some with a shovel — some choose a pen.
