WATERSTONE CAPTURES JACKSON POLLOCK'S ENERGY

Jackson Pollock's dynamic painting style has inspired musicians in diverse genres. His process was like a performance, and his art has often been compared to music.

Now musical artists can tap directly into Pollock's energy when they play the ultra-cool limited edition Jackson Pollock Studio Guitar or Jackson Pollock Studio Bass from Waterstone Musical Instruments of Nashville.

Pollock's studio was a converted barn, where he spread his canvas out flat and danced around it, using rhythmic gestures to apply vivid colors that often spilled over the edges onto the floor. After visiting the studio in East Hampton, New York, Waterstone president Robert Singer got the idea of using a detail of the paint-spattered floor to decorate the face of a special line of instruments.

"Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner are iconic figures in the world of art and culture," says Bob Singer. "Waterstone is very excited to have the opportunity to contribute to the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center through the production of these unique instruments."
