This piece entitled Creek was created by Robert Rauschenberg. Creek was created in 1964 and is silk screen on canvas. I chose this piece because I like Rauschenberg’s use of colors, namely his use of only primary colors (red, yellow, and blue), black, and white. At first glance it would appear that this picture is a collection of shapes, however when you look closer you can see that each shape contains an image. These images are taken from daily life, for example the statue of liberty can clearly be seen.
