Artist's Description

It’s a splash of tar on asphalt. Well . . . and some heavy work in Photoshop. I had to knock out each of those areas with the path tool using the Bezier function.

It was taken with the Olympus E500 (I love this camera lots and lots. I’ll toss it over for the E3, but it’ll hurt some. Olympus engineers got it goin’ on.) and the 14-45 lens.

Just as an aside, it seems somewhat ironic that I’ve never much cared for Pollock as an artist. I shot this on Jackson street in Green Bay, with no intention towards much of anything. God knows, I’ll stick a camera almost anywhere . . . the more it upsets people, the happier I am. But the name of the street stuck in my mind and it turned into what it is.

I’m doing much the same thing with a section of sidewalk that has some weird patterns in it. Except, in this case, they remind me of heiroglyphic writing and cave paintings. A highlight here, some color there . . . if you let me get away with it, I’ll declare cement to be art.

Of course, art is something of a communication between creator and viewer, therefore a shared definition of terminology follows from that.

Bah, humbug.

Next thing you know, people will be saying I can’t declare myself emperor because they don’t think I am.
