James RosenquistFlowersFeb 18th - Apr 17th 2021

Flowers focuses on paintings that James Rosenquist made in the 1980s featuring floral imagery and women’s faces. A leading figure of Pop Art, Rosenquist’s work had typically consisted of radical juxtapositions of familiar images culled from the world of commercial advertising. His work in the 1980s builds upon these early innova- tions, but is inflected with the personal. Both a move of his studio to Aripeka, Florida and his acquisition of the relatively technologically advanced color photocopier shifted the form and content of his work.
