Describing the origin of his iconic LOVE imagery, Indiana explains that as a child he was exposed to the Christian Science church whose only decoration was a gold inscription reading God is Love. In the mid-sixties, Indiana transformed this childhood experience into his own ‘Love is God’ motto for an exhibition Larry Aldrich was holding at a building that had once been a Christian Science church.
This limited edition ‘Love is God’ Indiana print was made in collaboration with master screen-printer Gary Lichtenstein Editions.
Robert Indiana, self-titled as the “American Painter of Signs” held a key role in the Pop Art movement since the 1960s. He was an influencer in the concept of using words in art, which has been followed by many artists following him.
