Man, what a weak part of the bracket. Relatively, of course, I'm not claiming either is *bad*.

Polke.

Pollock. I would probably choose the other guy if I hadn't seen a bunch of Pollock's works in person.

I know Pollock is an influential icon in the abstract movement, but I'd prefer looking at Polke's works.

I'm pretty surprised by the luke-warm reception Pollock has received so far. I think he's pretty great, and he's had some pretty weak competition.

Pollock by a drippy, swirly, delicately counterpoised mile.

Pollock prevails in a tough one there, and moves on to the Third Round with a margin of six to four.
