    This question is by Snowqueen - please post your answers here, and make sure you link us to the piece if possible so that we can check it out for ourselves.



    Jackson Pollock was an American Abstract Expressionist Painter. Many find this type of art difficult to interpret. Find a piece of Jackson Pollack art and tell how it affects you on a personal level or if you can't find one that affects you on a personal level, tell why this type of art doesn't move you.



    Moscow, could you update us about who has solved your puzzle? Thanks everybody!

    Another clue, just for clarification


    I didn't really mean to make it too hard.

    Default Snowqueen's Question Re: pollack

    Of Pollack's works, I liked Shimmering Substance most. It has a warmth to it that many of his other paintings lack. I believe he was still using paintbrushes at the time. It is definitely not in the drip category.

    Why does it speak to me? In a way, I suppose that many of Pollock's paintings can speak for my life right now. There is rhythm, there is purpose, but sometime it's hard to see what the result is going to be until you get there. There is a mixture of the controlled and the uncontrolled.

    Shimmers seems to show that there is warmth, there is sunlight, there is a purpose behind it all. I love the hint of a circle, in the yellow paint. It's like seeing the sun through thin clouds. You know its there, you know it'll be warm soon.

    On an interesting side note, Pollack was born 50 miles from my hometown. That's pretty cool, if I do say so myself!

    I've been avoiding this one for a while, because I couldn't come up with a good song to analyze. This morning I got a little nostalgic for the time I spent in Chile, and was looking for some pictures for Netsirk's thread that incorporate both lava and waterfalls (which, if I ever find some good pictures, are incredible. it may be hard to translate that feel from being there to a pic someone posted on the internet).

    Anyhow, I selected Si vas para Chile as my song to analyze. Here is a link where you can listen to an mp3 version. Si vas para Chile is one of the most famous and patriotic songs from the country.

    The Lyrics:

    Si vas para Chile,
    te ruego que pases
    por donde vive mi amada;
    es una casita
    muy linda y chiquita
    que está en la falda
    de un cerro enclavada.
    La adornan las parras,
    la cruza un estero,
    y al frente hay un sauce
    que llora y que llora
    porque yo la quiero.
    Si vas para Chile,
    te ruego, viajero,
    le digas a ella
    que de amor me muero.

    El pueblito se llama Las Condes,
    y está junto a los cerros y al cielo,
    y si miras de lo alto hacia el valle
    lo verás que lo baña un estero.
    Campesinos y gentes del pueblo
    te saldrán al encuentro, viajero,
    y verás cómo quieren en Chile
    al amigo cuando es forastero.

    A rough translation is in the Spoiler:



    The first time I heard this performed, it cut straight to my heart. Every time I hear it now, I remember the unquestioning love of the Chilean people. Even when something is far from them, they love it. The narrator of the song longs for not just his love, but also his family, his pueblo and the simplicity of life there where the heavens meet the hills.

    While others may have left their hearts in San Fransisco, I left half of mine in Chile. If ever there was a more beautiful place, both in the geography and the souls of the people, I haven't found it yet. Each stranger truly become a friend.

    The weeping willow cries and cries, not just because the narrator misses his love, but for every viajero that has come to Chile and left something behind.

    If, friends, you go to Chile, I beg you, let her know that for her love I am dying.
