new editions by Roy
Lichtenstein will be on view at Gemini G.E.L. at
Joni Moisant Weyl from April 20 through May 24, 1996.
Lichtenstein's importance in contemporary art was solidly
established in the 1960's with the emergence of Pop
Art. His use of cartoon images, Benday dots, and bold
line and color was shocking and exciting. Since that
time, and as with the 8 new prints exhibited, Lichtenstein
has expanded the use of his Pop Art imagery and pursued
a continually new vocabulary, often developing details
from previous works.
The new editions are an eclectic group of imagery, including
two Venetian blinds, two landscapes, two music compositions,
and two abstracted female images (which the artist refers
to as "Modern Art").
