Robert Indiana’s life-long interest in numbers derives from their range of significances and potential as loaded symbols. Indiana credits his penchant for numbers and their inherent symbolisms to his experience living in twenty-one different homes before he was seventeen years old. As Indiana has stated, “Numbers fill my life. They fill my life even more than love. We are immersed in numbers from the moment we're born. Love? Love is like a cherry on top of the whipped cream. Numbers surround us...[they] are seething around us...” As indicated by these two portfolios, Indiana’s fascination with numbers in some ways eclipses his interest in text, including the seminal Love, the central word in his best-known works.
