It's easier to understand than a lot of Jackson Pollock's stuff is.

Thank you Amy, always good to hear someone really enjoyed my humor. And Writer, funny thing is the picture is of a copy of a Jackson Pollock they had hanging at the Smiths.

Silly me. I should have recognized it immediately. Is it "Night in the Closet"? Or "Helen Keller's View of Alabama"? Pollock gives me so much trouble.....

Jeff said...

that old rossi sense of humor at work...it did get a few audible laughs though. nice work shneeb.

I can't beleive you don't recognize it! It's "Helen Keller's View of Alabama" of course. "Night in the Closet" uses a lot more interspacial nuiances than this one. How could you miss the play between the darkness of solitude and that of the lack of vision that "Alabama" is so famous for?

Just for the record Writer - your response was brilliant!
.
And Jeff - what are uncles for if not a good laugh every now and again.....

A Paperback Writer said...

Ah, yes. You're right about "Night in the Closet," of course. I need to review.....
(thanks :))

No problem. You should joing me for my "Pollock : The Dark Years" class up at the U. We meet every Friday night at midnight.

A Paperback Writer said...

Sounds good.
Here's one of my favorites. I believe it's from the "spotted period" (was that before or after the "dark years"? I forget.) and it's called "Stage Floor After Unsupervised Scenery Painting With Wind Machine On."
I think it's so relaxing. Don't you?

Yawn! Oh, man, that picture is so relaxing I just took a 20 minute nap from looking at it. Relaxing like a 9th grade Algebra class with 42 students in it. Relaxing like seeing a Suburban do a 360 right in front of you on the freeway. Relaxing like reading a redundant post that keeps making the same point over and over again and again.
