Pareidolia...that muse that jumps from our imagination which is prompted by our senses like seeing a shape or face in a cloud

Initially, it appears Jackson Pollock's preposterous painting "Ocean - Tribute," overtly oversteps the boundaries of abstract. And the eye struggles to validate its bewildering beauty, hidden amongst the dribbled droplets of chaos! But then, seemingly spontaneously, the blobs and dapples of color intermingle, and you see a kaleidoscope of shapes and forms merge and disperse into limitless patterns, as the unconscious mind gains access to the artist's dream. Each interpretation is unique, expressionism evokes imagination to abstractly convey pure thought and emotion. Beyond beautiful, it's breathtaking!

Emile, you have made the abstract real. It is a "breathtaking" experience to delve into the reality this painting holds - like watching clouds change shapes. Congratulation on your win my friend!

"seemingly spontaneously, the blobs and dapples of color intermingle, and you see a kaleidoscope of shapes and forms merge and disperse into limitless patterns" His art is brilliant; as is this poem of tribute, Emile.
