Artist and printmaker Allan D’Arcangelo, whose art combines styles of Pop Art and Minimalism, is best known for his work depicting the American highway system. In American Landscape, D’Arcangelo simplifies a highway system into recognizable symbols. A single-point perspective draws the viewer’s eye to diminishing black arrows recalling road signs or telephone poles while a yellow and red striped path approaches the sky with a “no through passage” road sign.
