“People don’t stop to think about how beautiful numbers are. Perhaps for the same reason that they don’t stop to think about how beautiful words are. […] It’s the role of the artist – my particular role, if you will – to make words an numbers very, very special”, he once stated. By being loyal to his instinct, his body of work has precisely explored the notions of beauty of words and numbers, which have turned him into one of the most important names in contemporary art.
Robert Indiana’s exhibition is on view until March 3 at Paul Kasmin Gallery, 293 10th Ave, New York.
