In the middle of the 20th century American artist Robert Rauschenberg approached an older colleague, Dutch-born abstract expressionist Willem de Kooning, and asked if he could erase one of his drawings.The canvases are all depictions of plinths – those bases upon which statues are erected.The statues themselves have been excised from Fakhoury's work. Though these canvases are less imposing than "Le Socle du Monde," they are more complex, post-Rauschenberg, creations. Not content to simply omit the statues from his depictions of pedestals, the artist renders base and statue both, then literally rinses the latter from the canvas, leaving the colors bleached and dripping. Fakhoury isn't a new media artist.
