New Work Gallery
Robert Rauschenberg is an acknowledged American master who has been living in Florida since 1970. This exhibition consists of recent works from his Scenarios series. The works are based on photographs taken by the artist, primarily in the environs of his home in Captiva, Florida.
Throughout his career, Rauschenberg has been a pioneer in the use of photographic reproduction in painting and printmaking. In the 1990s, he developed a unique, highly personal transfer process that has allowed him to continue to use his own photographs as the basis for large-scale works of art while exploring environmentally-friendly materials. The results are a surprisingly intimate reflection of the beauty and joy Rauschenberg has found in everyday life for the past 50 years.
