Pollock Quotes

 

 Jackson Pollock:
I’m not doing nothing worth ship.

That’s a damn good picture. That works. You’re a damn good woman painter.

I’ve had enough. Take me in.

You know that part of our lives that’s supposed to be so special, the growing-up part? It was a damn hell for me.

I don’t let the image carry the painting. If it creeps in, I try to do away with it,to let the painting come through.

Well, if people would just leave most of their stuff at home and just look at the paintings, I don’t think they’d have any trouble enjoying them. It’s like looking at a bed of flowers. You don’t tear your hair out over what it means.

I owe the woman something. I’d be dead without her.

 

Lee Krasner:
No one is doing what Pollock is doing.

The most powerful work to come round the pike, there’s no three ways about it.

I wanna get married, Pollock. I suddenly want to. So, either we marry or we split, I think. I love you. I think you’re a great artist. I want you to paint. I want very much to keep living with you. But I want that commitment from you, too. You’ll have to make the decision.

My life is full enough with you, Jackson.

You’ve done it, Pollock. You’ve cracked it wide open.

Just be yourself.

You’re a great painter, Pollock. Just paint.

Look what you’re painting when you were sober. Now that you’re back on booze, do you paint real pictures? Stop crying about it and paint! You’re Jackson Pollock, and you don’t paint! It’s a tragedy, and I can’t stand it! Paint!

Letter: “The roses were the most beautiful deep red. I miss you and I wish you were sharing this with me. It would be wonderful to get a note from you. The painting here is unbelievably bad. How are you, Jackson? Kiss Gyp for me. Love, Lee.

 

Howard Putzel:
Genius.

 

Peggy Guggenheim:
Now, these show something.

 

Clem Greenberg:
He’s original, he’s ambitious, but there’s a lot of mud. And the titles are pretentious. Muddiness, you know. Mud abounds.

What you’re doing out there, Jackson, is better than anything I’ve seen from you in a year or more. No I gotta backtrack. Peggy’s mural. That’s when I thought, “Here’s a great painter.”

Now, this is something. No matter how drunk you are…there’s one thing sacred you, not anybody’s feelings or anything like that. It’s your art. You’re not going to destroy your art. This is something.

 

Grocer/ Hans Namuth:
Best to find a quiet place, do what you have to do.

 

Jackson and Lee:
Lee: “What’s this? I see the head, the body. This isn’t cubism, Jackson, because you’re not really breaking down the figure into multiple views. You’re just showing us one side. And what is this, free association? Automatism?
-Pollock: “I’m just painting, Lee.
-Lee: “But what you’re doing, Jackson, and don’t tell me you don’t know what you’re doing…Are you experimenting with surrealism? Is this a dream? Even if it’s a dream, it’s still what you see. It’s life. You’re not just randomly putting paint on the canvas. You’re painting something. You can’t abstract from nothing. You can only abstract from life. From nature.
-Pollock: “I am nature.

Lee: “I went out looking for you. What are you doing to yourself?
-Pollock:”Nothing.
-Lee:”You’re doing more than that.
-Pollock: “It’s like a storm, it’ll pass.

Lee: “How did it go in there today?
-Pollock: “Thought you might make a table or something.
-Lee: “What?
-Pollock: “Get yourself working again.

Pollock: “We’re husband and wife. I wanna have a baby. Our baby. That’s what the…That’s what the progression of things is about. That’s what the union is about.
-Lee: “That’s not what the union is about.
-Pollock: “What else is there?
-Lee: “That’s not what it’s about, Jackson…For me. The vows don’t stipulate baby. I am not going to bring another life into that. We are painters, Jackson. We don’t  have any money. We don’t get by. We struggle. But you are a great artist. I believe in Jackson Pollock. There’s you, and there’s the painting. And you, you need, you need, you need, you need! And I don’t wanna be anywhere else. I don’t want to be with anyone else. But that’s all I can handle.

 

Jackson and Peggy:
Peggy:”That the mural goes on and on, Clem says, is what makes it so good. He thinks it’s a great painting. I think you found yourself a champion.
-Jackson: “It’s all bullshit, anyway.

 

Jackson and Clem:
Jackson: “No one knows I fucking exist. Who the hell’s talking about me?
-Clem: “Jackson, it’s new stuff. You got to give it time. And what you’re doing is the most original and vigorous art in the country.

Clem: “You had a good ten-year run. Everything’s gorgeous.
-Pollock: “Gorgeous isn’t good enough.

 

Jackson and Life Magazine:
Life Magazine: “How do you know when you’re finished with a painting?
-Pollock: “How do you know when you’re finished making love?

After Words Quotes

 

Jane:
For me, public libraries would be a perfect place, except for one thing…
The public.”
                                                                                                            

John Milton wrote that a good book is the precious lifeblood of a master spirit. And Paul Auster called reading his comfort and his escape.

If a person at death’s door does see her life flashing before her—meaningful images, moments of great beauty—what could possibly fly before my eyes in those final moments?

Where’s the beauty in a wasted life? And so the point of this trip? To create some beauty to play at the end. To make some pretty memories, even if it’s in a hopeless 11th hour of a pathetic life.

If it seems a foolish final wish, well, I haven’t done anything foolish in a while.

What’s the point? The good moments never last. I have no one to blame for this separation but myself.
It’s as if I received a shot that forever numbed to me. Only I gave myself that shot.

And he’s exactly right. It did not make much sense to take a shortcut on a final shortcut.

I wonder if I can feed myself to the wildlife from here up on the bridge. Would I wind up as a pair of boots? Or a handbag? Or maybe a belt? Go on, boys, make me an accessory.

I’m enjoying my final tour. Really, I am. There’s comfort in knowing I’m never going home. Unlikely as it may have seemed, I’m going out on a high.

Fitting in is a habit you either develop early or not. There’d be nothing more pathetic than attempting it now. Sitting amongst them would make it more obvious what a complete freak I am.

That’s the thing about a really great book. You can’t wait to get through it, but once it’s over it’s actually kinda sad.

““Remember, remember, this is now… and now… and now. Live it, feel it, cling to it. I want to become acutely aware of all I’ve taken for granted.””

I look like a woman who hasn’t worn a bathing suit in forever.

I don’t feel like a pathetic librarian anymore but I don’t really feel like myself either.

So whatever you do, just promise me this. Just promise me that you’ll remember that I had the best, best week of my entire life with you.

Your lips are like little pillows.

Everything’s great.

I traveled here to do a little living before I died. I guess I did a little too much living.

 

Juan:
Jane, you do different things on vacation. You are on vacation. That’s why you came, right?

I knew a book talk would make you happy.

 

Anna:
Women like sensitive men.

 

Juan and Jane:
Juan: “Well, I told you. I like words. I’m not too big on the books…
-Jane: “You could just pick up one and start.

Juan: “I want to start with the best book ever. Since you have read them all, which is the best one?

Why is that funny?
-Jane: “No, it’s just—That’s… an impossible question.
-Juan: “Why?
-Jane: “Cause there’s so many different kinds.

Juan: “You know…I’m Latin. I ask you all these questions about this. You know why?
-Jane: “Why?
-Juan: “It made you laugh. You should laugh in vacation, even if it’s at stupid me.

 

Anna and Juan:
Anna: “She told you read that?
-Juan: “No. I just wanted to read it. Is that so strange?
-Anna: “Yes! This is your first book…ever.

Anna: “Is she pretty?
-Juan: “Who?
-Anna: “The librarian.
-Juan: “I don’t know. Maybe.
-Anna: “How don’t you know? You look at her, don’t you?
-Juan: “Yeah, but I guess I just see how smart she is.
-Anna: “That’s so sweet, but that means she’s not very pretty.
