Jackson Pollock's shoes and the Chaos Theory.

Sperry Top-Sider, spring summer collection

These shoes could be wearing by a painter making his job in a regular work day. Not any painter, but Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) a famous expressionist painter from the abstract age. In fact these came from a new Sperry Top-Sider collection, the concept is really related with the notable American painter. 

Convergence, number 10, 1952. Esmalt.

Not so fast... Don't think your son could make something alike, because he didn't. In art is more important if you do first, and doesn't matter who made after, even better.

Pollock got famous because he was the first to abandon the easel for painting on the floor, huge canvas were he could stay almost inside them. Also for using houses ink instead the regular oil. He was an important representative of the dripping technic. Those dripping many times were made without brush as well.

Number 14, 1948.

His canvas seems like chaos, but not really, because they are harmonic. Some physicists found fractals relation with this work. This conclusion helped to uncovered a few frauds. Looks like he knew the Chaos Theory 10 years before the scientists even thinking on that.

This website allows you to do your own Pollock. You can have lots of fun trying different patterns.

Move the mouse and you'll see the dripping, space bar clean up the screen and the left click change the color.

Use alt to get the signature. Have fun!
