Jackson Pollock, Guardians of the Secret, 1943
San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
Girl in Museum on Jackson Pollock's Guardians of the Secret :
It restates the negativeness of the universe, the hideous lonely emptiness of existence, nothingness, the predicament of man forced to live in a barren, godless eternity, like a tiny flame flickering in an immense void, with nothing but waste, horror, and degradation, forming a useless bleak straightjacket in a black absurd cosmos.
"Play It Again, Sam", 1972
