Catalogue Note

“Rauschenberg began to experiment with water-based transfers of digital images printed on a large-format inkjet printer. The technology enabled him to funnel his immense and always growing stock of photographs directly into his work. Gathered over decades of travel, his photographs typically captured ordinary sights of little interest to most people…[Asked] why he liked mundane imagery, he replied, ‘It is overlooked. Most artists try to break your heart or they accidentally break their own hearts. I find the quietness in the ordinary much more satisfying.’” Sarah Roberts in: Exh. Cat., London, Tate Modern, Robert Rauschenberg, 2016, p. 378
