Two elegant pairings at LACMA. • • Here's the first: "White Center" (oil on canvas, 1957) by Mark Rothko at left, and "Black and White Number 20" (oil on canvas, 1951) by Jackson Pollock at right. While Rothko contained his abstraction here in more controlled and layered application, with subtle shifts of bright hues creating tonal gradients, Pollock instead aimed to convey more of his action-based working process, where chance could shape the twists and turns of his black paint drops in stark contrast against the crisp ground of this composition.
