A self-described “American painter of signs,” Robert Indiana’s works explore visual culture, national identity, and personal history through symbols and colors inspired by signage and graphic design. In Indiana’s work, divisions between word, object, and idea are conflated into one visual field. This lot, Indiana’s Yield Brother, is one example of Indiana’s use of military signage, stenciled letters, and a limited color palette to create an impactful work. The work’s dynamism stems from the tension between its call for peace and the visual language of aggressive mandates and military posters. Throughout his body of work Indiana uses text and symbols to create compelling works that blend the literal and the visual.
