- About the work
"Who gets nostalgic about canned spaghetti?"
James Rosenquist shunned sentimentality and was well-versed in the aesthetics of commercial bill-boards. Up close, they are unreadable and the image loses its meaning - giving the artist a degree of freedom. However, if combined in unexpected ways the sum becomes greater than the parts. A close-up of spaghetti takes the edge off the movie kiss. And combined with a 1950s Ford grill it brings to mind American drive-ins. The erotic undertone is enhanced by the car as a symbol and the congealing swell of pasta.
