Rahmberg regularly precedes his paintings, especially his larger ones, with a series of preparatory sketches, often little more than doodles, filling large sheets of paper with ideas and texts to help him work out the content and composition of the finished painting. In addition to these sketches (you can see some at the end of the Big Bang series), and ever inventive and experimental, he has also tried his hand at etching, with some impressive results such as the Arcimboldo-head (here in two versions), and the three ‘Sexual Motif’ prints at the end of this selection.
