Jackson Pollock (1947), oil and aluminum paint on canvas

Galaxy is a work by Jackson Pollock that apparently inspired by the night sky. It marked an important transition in his career in which he tried to display mathematical principles in chaotic motion. In fact, while contemplating on the distant galaxies of outer space, Pollock began reconsidering his own concepts of artistic space. For instance, Galaxy exhibits wider distances between each item compared to many of his other works. The colors also display a more extraterrestrial color scheme, befitting the title and image.
