ROBERT PREUSSER WORKS ON PAPER


Presents:

ROBERT PREUSSER WORKS ON PAPER This show is a collection works on paper by the Texas Modernist, Robert Ormerod Preusser (Am. 1919-1992). These works were created by Preusser during his time of study at the New Bauhaus School of Design in Chicago, under Laszlo Maholy-Nagy in 1939. The drawings are on period woven paper letterhead, some signed, double sided, or with color. At the young age of 18, Preusser was far from green at this point in his career, he was one of a select few Texas artists to have gained national recognition through national shows and exhibitions. Many of the works on paper in this show represent Preusser’s exploration and experimentation in art, partly influenced by his observation of the Constructivist movement which was an innovative movement coined by Ben Nicholas and Russian Sculptor Naum Gabo; in which the ideal is loosely described: “sees and values Art only as a creative act.” Preusser was one of the budding Texas artist to embraced contemporary international movements in art. Traditionally trained in Houston under Olla McNeal Davidson, Davidson saw his advanced artistic abilities. He had a keen perception on the relationship between scientific and creative worlds; the result is art that is not Robert Preusser | Works on Paper
