About Targets (ULAE 41)

The artwork titled “Targets (ULAE 41)” is a notable creation by the artist Jasper Johns, who is associated with the Pop Art movement. This piece is identified within the figurative genre, exemplifying characteristics of the movement’s interest in popular culture and everyday objects.

In the artwork, two rectangular blocks feature prominently against a muted grey background. The upper block contains a concentric circle pattern typical of a shooting target, rendered in shades of orange and white with a green border. The circles emanate from a central point, where a bullet hole might be located, suggesting use and lending authenticity to the object’s representation. In contrast, the lower block showcases a similar target pattern, but in a softer hue that gives the impression of fading or perhaps being unfinished. The stark absence of color in the lower segment draws attention to the juxtaposition of the two pieces, prompting considerations of visibility, perception, and maybe the passage of time. The textural qualities of the artwork imbue it with a tactile sense, thereby enhancing its physical presence and inviting a material connection with the viewer.
