HATE Sculpture - White Letters
Black, White, Maroon
A 180-degree turn on a classic sculpture that has been used and copied countless times in art, music, and even postage stamps!
LOVE is an iconic pop art image by American artist Robert Indiana. It consists of the letters LO over the letters VE; the O is canted sideways so that its oblong negative space creates a line leading to the V. The original image, with green and blue spaces backing red lettering, served as a print image for a Museum of Modern Art Christmas card in 1964. In much this same form the design soon graced a popular US postage stamp.
LOVE's original rendering in sculpture was made in 1970 and is displayed in Indiana at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. The material is COR-TEN steel. Indiana's LOVE design has since been reproduced in a variety of formats for rendering in displays around the world.
