Abstract Expressionism meets Polictical Art

Inspired by the work of Jackson Pollock and Joshua Allen Harris, we have created some hybrid art mixing abstract expressionism with a political message. First, using pastels, we designed a ‘melting Earth’ signifying the loss of ice due to global warming – some of us even turned the Earth into a melting ice cream. Then, after studying the work of Jackson Pollock and the ‘creative space’ he used to tune his mind into, we went outside, placed our canvas onto the grass and allowed our body’s to guide us in the process of creating our abstract expressionism. We have now morphed the two pieces together to form one creative masterpiece!
