One of my favorite post-modern artists is Robert Rauschenberg. Mrs. Quinet mentioned him briefly in class today, but didn't show any of his work. Rauschenberg is a Texan born artist that was drafted into the Navy where he worked as a neuropsychiatric technician. Later, he enrolled in the Kansas City Art Institute and began his artistic career. He is famous for his paintings and "Combines", in which he arranges found objects to form installation pieces. He worked in a variety of mediums, including painting, printmaking, sculpture and even performance. He has been deemed by some critics as a "neo-dadist". Personally, I love his work, especially those that involves image transfer. He was a pioneer of 20th century collage and mixed media pieces. I think his stuff is beautiful, intriguing and inspiring.
Here's a video with some of his work. I have no idea why Here Comes the Sun is playing in the background. It seems extremely inappropriate. But just mute it.
