Our family is watching The Code that's available on Netflix. Here Marcus du Sautoy zeroes in on the fractal nature at the heart of Pollock's art.

Hmm, dropping the paint onto a canvas erratically is the fundamental structure of the universe? There may be a fract or two missing there.

You will like it, Charles. And I'm betting Lana too. It is on Netflix.

Oscar, I've found it head-scratching that other painters have not been able to duplicate Pollock's "erratic" nature. And after watching this documentary, I developed a deeper appreciation of his art and the fractals of trees similarities they discussed.
