It’s been a while since i’ve posted to this blog, but today I learned of the death of James Rosenquist and it would be remiss of me not to acknowledge it.

Quite simply, he was one of the most interesting painters associated with American Pop Art, not just for his skill or vision but the sheer scale of execution he worked with – he was trained as a billboard painter back when that was a thing and carried it through into fine art.

Anyhow, he’s dead, at the age of 83. That’s a good run, but it’s still a sombre moment.
