Expression No. 2

Untitled - Expression no. 2 is an original artwork realized by Jackson Pollock in 1951 and then printed by his wife Lee Krasner in 1964.

Edition of 50. Serigraph on paper.

Very good conditions.

The artwork is part of a rare collection of six serigraphs.

The first edition (1951) includes 25 numbered and signed copies; the second edition (1964) includes 50 numbered copies, dated 1964. Every copy presents the embossing stamps: "Estate of J. Pollock 1964" and "Stathmore use either side". Numbered in pencil on the lower right margin. This is part of the second edition of 50 prints, in most cases the only one to be available on the market. Very good conditions.

The traces and trails made by physical bodies become pure and vibrant expression in Jackson Pollock’s Expression no.2. Although indelibly impressed on a support, they seem to retain and transmit the vital energy generated by the artist during the act of creation.

This work evidences Pollock's vital and dynamic approach to his art. Rectangular in shape and developing vertically, this piece shows an abstract composition, comprising figurative elements that lost their distinctive traits during the creative process. Abstract compositions in Jackson Pollock’s serigraphs demonstrate his ability of appropriating parts of art history and transcending them through a language that allows him to overtake the European figurative tradition. In moving forward, Pollock never leaves anything behind, as confirmed by his colleague and companion Lee Krasner, to whom Pollock confided that he could not stop himself during the creative process, even when an image began taking shape, because his final objective was to cover any figure.
