  1. action painting

    Action painting, also known as gestural painting, is a style of abstract expressionism in which the artist's process of creation is emphasized. This involves expressing emotional and psychological intensity through dynamic and energetic brushwork, drips, splashes, and other non-traditional techniques. The canvas may be used as an arena in which to act - expressing the artist's subconscious mind onto the canvas. This art form emerged in the 1940s and 1950s, prominently in the works of artists like Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning.
