James Rosenquist Violent Turn, 1977 is an eye-catching chromatic composition of fast-moving lines that take full advantage of the sleek horizontal visual space. In the center, multi-colored triangles stack upon each other, forming the bursting silhouette of a star. At the right, four gray horizontal nails -– one of Rosenquist’s signature themes – stack with one slashing across, forming the recognizable cluster of tally marks. Parallel to the nails run brightly hued streaks, meshing and mixing with both the nails and the star-shaped triangle arrangement. At the left, a lilac u-shape consisting of 5 skidding lines evoked the track marks of tires spinning energetically across pavement. Appropriately, the title of the work, Violent Turn, sits right below the quick u-shape. The work is exploding with a delightfully fun dynamism, a visual element that Rosenquist communicates in all his work in a thoroughly unique and enthralling manner. Playful, fast, and richly colorful, this engaging piece boasts everything Rosenquist is renowned for.
