Macroscopic is not necessarily big. For once the artist renders his macro- universe on a single sheet of paper.


“James Rosenquist undoubtedly deserves to be called a ‘monumentalist’ among American Pop artists and his tactics clearly pay off when the relationship between ‘subject matter’ and ‘size’ is right. Twenty-five feet of painting at one stretch is not only a rarity in Pop art. The only exceptions, perhaps, are Claes Oldenburg’s objects and a few of Andy Warhol’s late works.” Zdenek Felix Parkett No. 58, 2000
