Controlled Chaos in Painting of Chrissy Angliker

Chrissy Angliker is a Brooklyn based Swiss Artist. Aged sixteen, after years of study under the Russian artist Juri Borodachev, she moved to the USA.. There she studied Fine Art at the Walnut Hill School and eventually received a degree in Industrial Design from the Pratt Institute.

I started painting seriously when I was 13, then I studied design in school and began designing professionally. When it got to the point where I was successful enough to live off of my designs, I started to realize something was missing — and I knew it was painting. So, I quit my job, started painting again for the first time in six years, and started to figure out how to slowly change my life so that could be my focus. I just realized this is what I loved and it might not be the most rational way of living, but it was an undeniable thing.  via

Happy birthday to Jackson Pollock (1912–1956)! Famous for his drip paintings, Pollock was a highly influential artist in the emotion-packed movement of abstract expressionism. How does “No. 22” make you feel?

Last chance! Jackson Pollock: A Collection Survey, 1934–1954 closes Sunday. This painting, titled Free Form, is very likely Pollock’s first “drip” painting. The exhibition explores how the artist’s signature style developed over several decades.
