Gallery label text 2013:
Indiana’s attention to American themes, use of bright, vibrating color and formal configurations marked him as one of the central figures of American Pop art. His work often consists of bold, simple, iconic images, especially numbers and short words like EAT, HUG, and, his best known example, LOVE.
Indiana was drawn to the existential aspects of numbers, which he regarded as the basic elements structuring our daily lives and representing the spectrum of existence, 1 representing birth and 0 standing between life and death.
