BEYOND WORDS

Pictures don’t always speak truthfully, and Robert Indiana may well be a jolly guy. But this pair of photographs–eerily similar in composition, and book ends to some 45 years of living–seems to suggest that the balefulness evidenced in Peter Ross’ portrait (below) may have already been in place when William John Kennedy captured a youthful Indiana back in 1963. Even juxtaposed with his famous words–DIE and LOVE–it’s Indiana’s disconsolate expression that seems to say more than his art.
