Art & Language Picasso’s Guernica in the Style of Jackson Pollock (Essay II)
Sprovieri Gallery – 17 Jan 2020 to 13 March 2020, London
Sprovieri is proud to present Picasso’s Guernica in the Style of Jackson Pollock (Essay II), the second collaboration of the gallery with Art & Language.
Picasso’s Guernica in the Style of Jackson Pollock (Essay II), 1980-2019, is a large rectangular work on paper, where the powerful and dramatic painting by Picasso Guernica is disguised as a Pollock-like painting. The work was not produced by means of the ‘literal’ use of Pollock’s well known technique. It is rather a drawing in which drips and spatters are represented or depicted. The drawing is made with Indian ink on 114 sheets of Teslin, printed with essays and texts written by the artists themselves between 1980 and 2016.
