Style Imitating Art: Autumn Rhythm (Number 30) by Jackson Pollock

 Style Imitating Art Inspiration {living outside the stacks}

Welcome to another week of Style Imitating Art, where we draw our style inspiration from works of art. Style Imitating Art {aka SIA} is hosted by Jen {Librarian for Life and Style}, Salazar {14 Shades of Grey}, and me. Every other Monday, one of us curates an art piece to use as style inspiration for the following week {host outfits are posted on the following Monday, with participant outfits shared on the curator’s blog on Wednesday}.

THE CURATOR

This week’s inspiration piece was curated by Salazar {14 Shades of Grey}. She chose this image because she thought “the neutral color scheme and title make it an appropriate choice for September.”

Salazar  While researching the image, she learned that Jackson Pollack’s “…drip paintings are so pleasing to look at because they contain fractal patterns similar to those in nature, which I found fascinating (scientists even use fractal analysis  to authenticate some Pollockesque paintings recently found – they turned out to be fake ones).”

MY LOOK

Full disclosure: I’ve shown this look on the blog before. I had plans to put together an original look but life happened. And, to be honest, I don’t think I could’ve done a better job of replicating the colors, textures, and patterns in Pollack’s painting if I had tried. I mean, look at the patterned tights! Just perfect, don’t you think?

Don’t forget to visit Jen and Salazar to see what they’re wearing!
