Adam Pinsley’s Jet Drip Painting series, show-cases works inspired by Abstract Expressionist Jackson Pollock. His oversized, colorful, and unique paintings tap into the world of commercial aviation through their materiality. Moving away from traditional artist mediums, Pinsley uses all commercial-grade aircraft components. Using aircraft aluminum as his canvas and scrap metal in place of brushes, he pours, drips, and dribbles commercial-grade aircraft paint to make his artwork. Pinsley upends the traditional vertical canvas to layer paint from all directions, creating dynamic texture and dimension in each piece.
