Homage to Rauschenberg Set- 5 signed limited edition silkscreen prints with gold leaf, diamond dust, embossing and glazes by pop artist Sir Peter Blake. Created as a tribute to Robert Rauschenberg, whose work has inspired Peter Blake througout his career,
'Robert Rauschenberg was an enormous influence on me in the mid 1950s. My 'Rauschenbergs' are a very formalised version of his work. I made no attempt to assimilate his beautiful, almost 'Abstract Expressionistic' use of paint. '
The series coheres around a theme of childhood games, with each work featuring game boards or puzzle lids from iconic games such as Snakes and Ladders and Chess. Around this imagery Blake mixes British and American visual paraphernalia from the world of commercial art and popular culture.
