Eggspressionism, v1-2008, Edit A

“Eggspressionism”.
Abstract Expressionism Photography.
Egg Photography.

I’m a longtime fan of Jackson Pollock, and the Abstract Expressionism style. I’m a rather novice Abstract Expressionism painter myself, but I attempt anyway, and I love using unusual subjects to “throw” my paint, such as eggs.

I’ve only seen one Jackson Pollock work in person, and that is his “Galaxy”, owned by the Joslyn Art Museum (Omaha, NE), which is one of my favorite Pollock paintings, located at one of my favorite places, Joslyn.

I will probably cook this egg later, as it is a real egg, and that is why the 3D original will not last, but my Photography of my artwork, can last on its behalf.

Unlike much/most Abstract Expressionism work, I like a considerable amount of “black-space”. My works are also very small compared to the huge canvases used by the Abstract Expressionism Masters.
