Factum lll & lV is a direct reference to Rauschenberg's Factum I (1957, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles) and Factum II (1957, The Museum of Modern Art). "This pair of paintings reflects the artist's wry attempt to make two identical pictures, in order to test the boundaries of painting and to call into question the spontaneity said to characterize Abstract Expressionism. Although comprised of identical collage elements and similar strokes of paint, the two Factums are nonetheless subtly distinct from one another and announce the deliberate choices involved in the artist's creative process." [quote from MOMA catalog]
Cody Bayne is the creator who coined the term Neo-Urban Expressionism. His work has been compared with the key artists of the 20th century - Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, and Andy Warhol - who made new meaning of contemporary culture and forged new individualized visual languages .
