Hoy el mundo del arte despide
a Robert Indiana, figura destacada en el #popart estadounidense desde la década de 1960.
Autoproclamado "pintor de signos estadounidense", ha creado una obra muy original que explora la identidad estadounidense, la historia personal y el poder de la #abstracción y el lenguaje, estableciendo un legado importante que resuena en el trabajo de muchos #artistas contemporáneos donde la palabra escrita es un elemento central de su obra.
Con la última obra de esta colección, “Die”, vendida por Mirat Projects a una importante colección privada, nos despedimos de esta gran figura del #arte .
Today the art world says goodbye to Robert Indiana, who dies at the age of 89 in Maine.
#robertindiana ,one of the preeminent figures in American art since the 1960s, has played a central role in the development of assemblage art, hard-edge painting and Pop art. A self proclaimed “American painter of signs,” Indiana has created a highly original body of work that explores American identity, personal history and the power of #abstraction and language, establishing an important legacy that resonates in the work of many #contemporary#artists who make the written word a central element of their oeuvre.
Robert Indiana (1928-2018)(formerly Robert Clark) first expressed the essential iconography of “LOVE” in 1958 but it wasn’t until 1964 that the image garnered wide public notice, via a Christmas card commissioned by the Metropolitan Museum of Art. One of the first three-dimensional LOVE sculptures has stood, since 1970, in front of the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
Like many metal artworks designed to stand out in the open, the IMA’s LOVE sculpture is made from Cor-ten steel, an alloy that weathers to a rich, slightly iridescent, purplish-brown patina after years of seasonal changes.
With sadness, we mark the passing of Robert Indiana (1928-2018), whose Pop art explorations of language went far beyond his iconic “LOVE” series. Seen here is an installation view from our 2008 exhibition, “Pop Art and After,” which featured Indiana’s Golden Five suite from 1980 (screenprints, Collection of the Zimmerli Art Museum, Gift of Robert Bliss). #robertindiana#popart#americanart
