Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Rauschenberg

Robert Rauschenberg (1925-2008)
As I am off to the USA this week I thought it would be good to see an exhibition of an American artist currently on show at the Tate Modern. It is the first full scale retrospective exhibition since Rauschenberg's death in 2008. It is a large collection of his work covering six decades arranged into rooms. Each room represents a change in his technique or mode of working.


The work I liked the best was in the silkscreen room which he began to experiment with in the early 60s.

  9. Six decades! I really had no idea he had been painting for that long. A very interesting preparation for your trip and I hope it lives up to this interesting start.
