LEO STEINBERG FLATBED PICTURE PLANE PDF

I Bill. Albers despised Rauschenberg and would never talk about him in later years, but he taught the artist about the importance of materials. Any kind of material could be used. In Rauschenberg had gained enough self confidence to write excitedly to the New York art dealer, Betty Parsons, of a new body of work, the White Paintings. The way the shadows played on and changed the white surface reminded Cage of his interest in silence, a fascination that had been growing since the late s. Cage constructed the minute spectacle for selected colleagues who were each assigned two random segments of time in which to perform activities of their choice.

His criticism was collected in a book of essays, Other Criteria: Confrontations with 20th-Century Art, in The picture plane as a vertical held true throughout the art movements including the more radical such as Cubism and Abstract Expressionism.

In relation to the Abstract Expressionists, Steinberg cites Pollock as one example who could be seen to work horizontally but points out that this was more a way of starting — to speed up getting paint onto canvas.

Pollock was essentially creating paintings to be seen and viewed vertically otherwise the drips would not drip. They dispensed with traditional and experimental e. That meant visualising the canvas as a horizontal surface that could be covered with objects and materials as well as paint.

The resulting works did not have a top or a bottom. There is less reference to working with nature or making a visual recording of that which is seen. It highlights how Rauschenberg sought to blur the lines between his work and the outside world. He wanted his work to be seen not within the definition of an artwork — say a painting, sculpture or collage — but more as an entity that came about as a result of his interaction with the world.

It is a place where things are, as on a table or on a town seen from the air: any one of them could be removed and another come into its place through circumstances analogous to birth and death, travel, housecleaning, or cluttering. He is not saying; he is painting. What is Rauschenberg saying? The message is conveyed by dirt which, mixed with an adhesive, sticks to itself and to the canvas.

Each thing that is there is a subject. It is a situation involving multiplicity. In that case one is saved the trouble of having to reply.

This involves a move away from having, for example, sky and the top and land at the bottom of the work — or even thinking about there being a top or bottom. References the Guardian. Leo Steinberg obituary. Harrison, C. Robert Rauschenberg Foundation. Third Time Painting. Share this:.
