Pre-objective Depth in Merleau-Ponty and Jackson Pollock
Fingerprints don't mean anything to museum curators or art appraisers that have seen the painting. This woman is trailer trash, basically, to the snobby snobs of the art world, and the ghost of JP himself could appear to them and say: Take it as an article of faith - you can't trade with the high brows if you don't smell like money already.
That's the message of the story Horton is putting forth, anyway. If he were any good, why couldn't he just paint a figure, a faerie or a piece of fruit, like any other normal artist? It all comes down to provenancein my humble opinion.

No signature on the work? Then, if the artist Jackson Pollock painted it, and didn't sign it, then he was devaluing it, himself.Jackson Pollock- Lee Krasner House and Studio, East Hampton, NY
Then, he failed to destroy it, which is the accepted norm for artists. It seems that our Teri Horton was offered 9 Million dollars for the piece, but refused it as too little. Artists today have powerful tools to establish a paper trail for their work: All these things are data that helps to tag that artwork down through history.
Teri's Five Dollar Pollock is a byproduct of the Antiques Roadshow era, where any schmuck can fall off a turnip wagon and come up smelling like a rose.
Rags to riches, as it were. Don't be angry at the art world, Teri. Brush up on your pitch! The bigger lesson is the commentary on modern art that this episode reveals. The rank and file don't like the art, don't care for the artists that much and really dislike the highbrow art world that surrounds this whole mess.

When we see Pollock "drunk" on his ascent, reading from an Italian magazine during a family reunion, that really got to me. Maybe that was more dangerous than alcohol. Even if that critical acceptance is not essential, eating is.
Another thread alluded to in this film, how to "work" and to live as an artist. That scene also drove home the obsessive nature of being an artist, how it is hard at the same time to be a brother, or uncle, husband or perhaps impossible to be a father.
Thus that obsession helps to contrast Sande and Jackson, and certainly sets up the power of Marcia Gay Harden's performance. Krasner too is an artist, who has had some success. She retains her name, and her dreams, but fully embraces Pollock, and Pollock's artwork. Her support of him, while aware of her limits, was presented without martyring her. She was not a saint wandering into Pollock's hell. They are already communicating in their chosen medium, and presumably they are communicating that way as it is easier than using words.
I thought the interview with Life magazine in this film, and Pollock's notion of viewing his art as one views a field of flowers helped me. The radio interview that Pollock conducted, halting and awkward could have underscored the travails of talking about art, or it seemed like he was trying to read from a manifesto of sorts perhaps in real life one exists. Finally, the documentary film is painted as an undoing of Pollock.
Fascinating as we ourselves are watching a film about Pollock. It's as if Ed Harris the actor in character could be talking to Ed Harris the film auteur. The documentary film was to Pollock, what a zoo can be to a wild animal. The habitat corrupts the inhabitant. How Pollock puts on his shoes, when he's done painting, all control is lost No, that's not the point to this film. If you are looking for a film with one tidy point, go elsewhere. But for an abridged but admirable biopic on Jackson Pollock, with many tangled and tantalizing threads And now a book for me to read.
Rarely do I watch the deleted scenes and wish they had been in the film, as I did in this case.
