It has been said that if you remember the 1960s, you were not there. Well I remember some of the 60s, so maybe I was partly there. I was at art college in London during the 60s and got high on art, not drugs! I do remember a Rauschenberg exhibition at our art college gallery of eight of his mono prints that were on loan from the New York gallery that represented him. American artists such as Rauschenberg, Alexander Calder, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, and Andy Warhol were very influential at the time, and my recent work Psychedelic Dance was an attempt to capture the Pop Art style of the 60s. I used a combination of three crystal prisms and Californian sunlight to paint with, and my Nikon D700 digital SLR, mounted with a 85mm, 1.4 lens to record it, plus photoshop to create the digital sections and layers to complete Psychedelic Dance.
