Pollock: Ed Harris in Paint Splattered Denim

14 February 2011 5:36 PM, PST | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

Jackson Pollock spawned a thousand imitators in the art world when he chose to work in denim jeans and a t-shirt. Referred to somewhat derogatorily as ‘Jack the Dripper’ by Time magazine, his paint splattered denim was copied by, among others, Max Ernst and Andy Warhol. Costume design for the film Pollock (2000) by David C. Robinson precisely recreates his most iconic workwear looks.

At the start of the story as a struggling artist, Pollock (Ed Harris) is straightaway established as an outsider against the progressive backdrop of metropolitan New York. Fuelled by an alcoholism that he never recovered from, Pollock was eager to succeed although had yet to find his true artistic voice. His clothes, like his art, were inspired, at least in part during those early years, by Pablo Picasso.

Picasso often painted in casual, lightweight denim. Similarly we see Pollock working in dark rinse jeans with thick selvedge »
