erased de kooning
what’s the best way to describe this robert rauschenberg piece? i think in his own words: “it’s poetry”. i love the whole idea and concept behind it: take a finished piece of art by de kooning and erase it then claim it as your own. genius.
go to this video link or the one below to get the full story. it’s amazing that de kooning even gave the then unknown artist the piece but it shows that he had an open mind (or an odd sense of humour). a fascinating story.
a work of art that was created by taking another (famous) artist’s work and erasing it…ballsy. so many levels to this piece, a total mind f*ck.
Are you curious about what Robert Rauschenberg erased during the creation of his fascinating Erased de Kooning Drawing? As part of an extensive Rauschenberg research project, SFMOMA staff took infrared pictures of the piece to see what the original de Kooning sketch may have looked like.

these are drawings my eight year old son did that i scanned and turned into an animated gif. he’s a huge lego fan and one day decided to draw these four heads. each one has a different facial expression and i thought it would fun to animate them…yes i was bored.
