Rauschenburg Exhibition

It was a privilege to get to see this unexpected Rauschenburg exhibition at The Edinburgh Botanic gardens. I was particularly interested in the way in which Rauschenburg had used the materials. Many of the pieces were screen-printed onto mirror finished aluminum. I liked the effect of layers which occurred as you viewed the print on top and then saw the depth of the room through the reflection in the metal.

Screen-printing onto the metal. Is this a technique which we could use maybe?

This pattern reminded me of some of the designs; especially some of the rubbings which Dennis was working on.

Interesting marks and shadows
