The Deep is an abstract expressionist painting by American painter Jackson Pollock.[1][2] Pollock here uses black-white combination of dripping paint, only to break it down with touches of yellow. There are many interpretations on meaning of painting, and painting's name, most often as deep and profound void or hole, a viscous cut or dying man, hence the name The Deep.
