Culture Club: Red Carter Jackson Pollock Bikini Top

The Red Carter Jackson Pollock Bikini Top ($53) would give us crazy tan lines, but we can't take our eyes off the splatter print and extra straps. Metal ring hardware and tie strap beading add some shine to this artsy design too. A great, unorthodox find for summer.

Let's lay it out. When people think of Abstract Expressionism, they probably think of Jackson Pollock's drip paintings. In his drip method, Pollock flung paint with the canvas on the floor, inspired by Native American sandpainting and Surrealist automatism. His piece, Lavender Mist (at the National Gallery of Art, Washington), epitomized the multi-layered atmospheric effect he achieved with this technique.

Make your own drip painting at JacksonPollock.org.
Forget about cliff notes, just watch Ed Harris play the man himself in Pollock the movie.

Is it bad that I'm only thinking about how weird the tan lines would be after a day in the sun in this bikini? Cause that's even more Jackson Pollock than the splatter paint.

Super cute bikini at a great price but I would prefer a purple or neon splatter. The white splatter makes me think that someone in a black bikini got "hit" by a seagull when sunbathing.

Agree with BethNicole. Also don't see the necessity to educate us on absact expressionism. I'm here to shop, not to take an art history or film class...

Umm, Jess.. from reading your comment, it seems like you do need an education in absTRact impressionism, considering you can't even spell it. And aren't they supposed to be reviewing products, which includes talking about the origins of the products? Knowing where the print on your bikini comes from makes it more special. Reader comment FAIL.

Thanks, Francesca. It's just that we have a lot of really smart, well educated (self or school) women on our team. And when they can make learning about art or technology or history interesting, then why shouldn't they?

Plus, how much can you say about a swimsuit? Creativity AND learning Win.

Thanks, Francesca and One Ring. I write most but not all of the the Culture Club features. Not everyone wants to read what I consider to be interesting tidbits. By all means, skip the light educational content if you want, but it's meant to draw attention to the interconnections in fashion and art.

I love those posts! They always seem to send me off on an evening of Wikipedia research - look one thing up, get distracted by a link in that article, go to the link, get distracted by a link in THAT article, and so on & so forth! But, then again, I'm a total nerd and I love stuff like that.
