Life and Death artists?
I’m looking at life and death in art; any ideas of artists I could study ?
Maya Deren, Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock… any artists from the abstract expressionism movement… they are questioning the purpose of life. Some get stuck (Rothko) and some form a bridge (Maya Deren). Maya Deren was an experimental film artist but she was extremely significant to the movement.
Here is an entire list of plenty!
Scroll down until you get to the list.
You’ll be surprised at how many abstract expressionists came to a dead end and committed suicide.
