Watermelon Medley, 2017
Painter and photographer, graphic artist and object artist
Robert Rauschenberg became known in New York at the outset of the 1950s as a painter of monochrome works. In the mid-1950's, his so called "Combines"– works combining painting and sculpture, assembled from various found objects and pictures as well as expressively applied paint – helped him to achieve his breaktrough. The individual components do no necessarily relate to one another directly; instead, their selection is based on chance. The same goes for the skateboard motif – a typical Rauschenberg motif.
