Remembering Robert...



Yesterday was a very sad day in art land. Robert Rauschenberg, one of my favorite artists of all time, died at the age of 82. Rauschenberg was a huge influence on my work and I have long admired his brilliant use of everyday materials. What I loved most about Rauschenberg was the fact that he pushed the boundaries of the definition of art. He also seemed like such a genuinely nice person. Here are a few of his pieces, including a car that he painted.

Oh my goodness. I hadn't heard that he passed away. What a terrible loss for the art world...for the whole world really. I will never forget the first time I saw his work at a Guggenheim show...had to be 10 years ago. I think I spent all day there I was so taken in by his work. At least he has left behind a legacy of pieces for people in enjoy and study for many years to come. Thank you Robert!

I focused on the fact that Louise B. is still kicking around.
