Aros Aarhus - James Rosenquist: Painting as Immersion

The last great American pop artist James Rosenquist, who died last year, is remembered as one of the most influential artists in pop art. Since the 1950s, he, along with Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, innovated the art scene to be about much more than paintings in golden frames. His paintings went beyond any known conventions – quite literally. In the 1960s, he started working with enormous sized art pieces, a task he was familiar with through his work as a billboard painter. Walking through the exhibition, one will find that many of Rosenquist's large-scale pieces stretch beyond one's field of view.
