Channeling Rauschenberg

Posted: January 12, 2015 in Uncategorized

In discussing what our third project would be, it was quickly agreed that we would try to work in fiber.  Upon further conversation, about vintage textiles, image transfers and sheer layers, all three of us established “like Rauschenberg”.  Prior to our studio day, we gathered our photos, text and images to transfer, compiled scraps of old fabrics and looked at images of Rauschenberg’s collages, assemblages and combines for inspiration.

Upon sharing our various materials and resources at the studio, our collaboration was immediately validated by the fact that Janet’s photos and Andrea’s prints on fabric had the exact same motif of an industrial metal grate. Deborah brought a huge volume on Rauschenberg’s work, from which we agreed on which pieces really spoke to us. By the end of the day, we had not one, but two art pieces, for which we gleaned inspiration and guidance from channeling the works of Robert Rauschenberg.
