Acquavella Galleries is delighted to present Multiverse You Are, I Am, an exhibition of new work by celebrated Pop artist James Rosenquist. The exhibition will feature eleven paintings – two of which are monumental in scale – that reflect the artist’s continued interest in time and outer space. Known for his leadership in the American Pop Art movement, James Rosenquist began his career as a billboard painter in New York City. This experience inspired him to work on a large scale. With bright Day-Glo colors and a sleek aesthetic, Rosenquist’s early work juxtaposed fragmented images derived from advertising to create enigmatic, thought-provoking narratives that foster a dialogue about consumer culture. As a child Rosenquist witnessed the Northern lights, star showers and solar winds on the nighttime prairie in North Dakota that has had significant impact on his visual vocabulary. A new painting, Geometry of Fire, created in response to the artist’s studio being destroyed by a brushfire in 2009, will also be exhibited.
