The 1980s was all about object oriented paintings for me. I  saw Robert Rauschenberg’s combines and I was totally in love with the medium. I didn’t know I was looking at his work he made decades before. When I did discover this I would slowly climb out of that phase. Sadly object artworks do not play well in digital images therefore there were not many digital artworks and collages form that period. What’s worse is very few remain as they were very large and very heavy. Working in big tech – we moved allot. The art works were insanely difficult to move – so we stopped. Though I doubt any were great art – I do miss having them around.
