polaroid: japanese sky – robert rauschenberg

June 22, 2010

 

.

A number of significant prints from the Polaroid collection were sold off today, following Polaroid’s bankruptcy proceedings. This, with the North Carolina print (below), was one of them. Rauschenberg’s “Bleacher’ series was so called because bleach was used on the prints as a finish.

I love Robert Rauschenbergs work: the first piece of art I ever bought (a poster of Retroactive II, painted in 1964) was by him; it has been on the wall in my house for more than 20 years. I like to look at the shifting planes and think about the compositions that he made, the use of paint and colour treatments. It is all so chaotic, so you need to make a path through, a story for yourself to read the image, like a painting as detective story. As a student these works changed everything for me. Rauschenberg was so ahead of his time and the work was (and is) relevant architecturally.  As with a building, you can take multiple routes, find multiple (and possibly endless) narratives, must bring your own story and make your own way. I should really make a proper post on his work, and will do, but here is some more of his work, just because I like to look at it.
