Product details

Ocean Greyness was originally composed for Bb clarinet during May 2003, and first performed by Paul Todd, during a Melbourne Composers League concert at the Retro Café, Fitzroy on 1st June 2003. The title refers to a 1953 painting by Jackson Pollock, currently exhibited at the Guggenheim Museum in New York.

Ocean Greyness, one of Pollock's last great works, depicts several disembodied eyes hidden within the swirling colored fragments that materialize from the dense, scumbled gray ground. "When you are painting out of your unconscious," he claimed, "figures are bound to emerge." Manifest in this painting is a dynamic tension between representation and abstraction that, finally, constitutes the core of Pollock's multileveled oeuvre. -- Nancy Spector
