In Autopoetics and Wire, Carter Mull brings together a montage of found images that reflect contemporary American culture and art. These include four reproductions of the poster promoting the 2000 movie Pollock, about Abstract Expressionist artist Jackson Pollock. Although the background is bleached out in these negative versions, Ed Harris as Pollock is shown in front of one of his paintings while he works on another set up on the floor. The poster reproductions are accompanied by three smaller color images of hands pointing at, framing, and covering parts of a Pollock painting. These details are taken from larger photographs in which women modeling ball gowns posed in front of Pollock works during a Cecil Beaton fashion shoot for the March 1951 issue of Vogue.
