When Rauschenberg met De Kooning

BIG Thanks to @austinkleon for this post about Rauschenberg erasing a De Kooning. BRILLIANT.

austinkleon:

The incredible story of Robert Rauschenberg walking up to Willem de Kooning’s house with a bottle of Jack Daniels and asking him for a drawing he could erase.

Not long before he died, Robert Rauschenberg told the story of the Erased De Kooning Drawing in this BBC video. He’s a good storyteller. When he finished his erasure, some folks accused him of vandalizing a de Kooning, saying he destroyed art. It wasn’t vandalism, he tells the interviewer. Then what was it? “Poetry,” he says.

crayon + construction paper: On a graphic facilitation project yesterday, there was crayons and construction paper for the clients to use. I saw the white crayon and wanted to draw something with it. The pink paper was a a perfect pink. On a break, I made this drawing with three crayons. I’d like to know this woman.

Solutions: Monday’s collage, when I was in a day-long fog. I’m hoping my brain is more sparkly today.

"It’s Young Fashion" Much like taking bits of conversation and arranging them into one, whole drawing, I adore doing collage. Love making something new out of all the bits and bobs. Had a crafternoon with a delightful sosser behind bricolagelife. We did far more talking than paper-pushing, but this lil 5” x 6.5” lovely emerged.
