Born Robert Clark, Indiana took the name of his home state to emphasize that his essential subject was American visual culture. He describes himself as a “sign painter.”

External Hexagon is one of Indiana’s many precise geometric forms based on numbers. The hexagon, a flat shape with six sides and six angles, is a fundamental organizing structure in nature, and an important symbol in many religions. In the hands of a pop artist who is engaged in commercial graphics, this reference to eternity is ironic.
