Paper Clip, 1973

James Rosenquist

Dallas Museum of Art

James Rosenquist culls imagery from diverse sources such as fashion, lifestyle, and news magazines to create dynamic and engaging compositions. Like some of the other artists associated with pop art, Rosenquist had experience in commercial art as a sign and billboard painter. This training immersed the artist in consumerism and consequently inspired him to explore the ad industry for inspiration in his work of the 1960s, 70s, and 80s. Paper Clip reveals his mastery of compositional techniques by presenting seemingly unrelated images and text side by side.
