"Robert Rauschenberg: Vydocks" is now open at Pace Gallery in Hong Kong! Stop by the 12th Floor of the H Queen's Building at 80 Queens Road Central to see this selection of eight "Vydock" works rarely seen since their initial exhibition in 1995, each of which #Rauschenberg created on identical sheets of bonded aluminum, measuring around eight feet high by five feet wide. #RauschenbergVydocks
The pairing of photographic images and painted passages that reoccurs through the series reveals #RobertRauschenberg’s ongoing exploration of the relationships between abstraction and representation, painting and photography, and the original and the copy. An ardent believer in time’s unrepeatability and the unique significance and substance of every moment, Rauschenberg relentlessly sought to create art that captured the elusive nature of time, perception, reality and memory. The "Vydock" series represents a critical element of that artistic and philosophical pursuit; and shows the artist striving to express the infinitely different ways one sees and remembers the world.
