Exhibition Label
Robert Rauschenberg invited Brice Marden to make prints in 1972 at his Untitled Press located on a property adjacent to his home on Captive Island, Florida. The artists reached the printmaking workshop by a road cut through subtropical vegetation. The gestural nature of this print expresses the experience of reaching the studio: “Every day to get to the workshop I had to walk from the house through this jungle. These have much more of a jungle feeling. This is much more vegetal than other prints.” The succession of prints in the series suggests the brief passage of time as Marden crossed from house to workshop.
