LOVE 2021 Version 2-Vivid Violet
As a continuation of my Ode to Robert Indiana Series, these mixed media pieces were done right after the new year, 2021. The optimistic change in the air led me to work with new colors, new vibrancy, and a new attitude. Robert Indiana was an American artist associated with the pop art movement. His "LOVE" print, first created for the Museum of Modern Art's Christmas card in 1965, was the basis for his 1970 Love sculpture and the widely distributed 1973 United States Postal Service "LOVE" stamp. His recent passing inspired me to create a work honoring his legacy. This piece is a combination of digitally manipulated photography and Digital Art.
