Small Rebus – Robert Rauschenberg

Oil, graphite, paint swatches, paper, newspaper, magazine clippings, black-white photographs, United States map fragment, fabric, and three-cent stamps on canvas – 1956

I’m not sure what it is about Rauschenberg that continually intrigues and inspires me; if it’s the colour, the way he paints, the energy of his pieces, how he juxtaposes elements, how he lays things out spatially. But every single time I have a gut reaction, something charges up inside me, his work demands my attention. His craftsmanship is undeniable.
