A Look at Robert Indiana—Gallery Art

Robert Indiana, 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, sign painting and Pop Art. Born Robert Clark, he took his surname as a result of spending his early life traveling throughout the state of Indiana, living in more than 20 different homes before the age of 18. 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 composition.
