Robert Indiana

Robert Indiana (1928-2018) was an American artist associated with the pop art movement. There is a selection of his paintings and sculptures on show at present at YSP, tracing the development of his career across six decades of social and political change. Much of his work considered human rights issues and social justice, using letters, numbers and bright colour. His iconic work is 'LOVE'.  A version is perched on the hillside at YSP (see my last photo), and variations are also on display, like 'AMOR' above. The works are playful and arresting. Though not entirely my 'cup of tea' as art, nevertheless I enjoyed working out ways of photographing them, both as whole works and in abstraction.
