I’m sure you are familiar with Roy Lichtenstein’s work, he is one of my favorite pop artists, very influential and unique. His comic book-inspired style, during the 1990’s, rendered his famous trademark. The works are focusing on modern furniture and architecture, highlighting the simple forms and atmosphere of decorative apartment life during this time period.
Some of the artwork depicted on the walls of the interiors even seems to be in the vain of Lichtenstein’s work, which is inevitable, as anything rendered in Lichtenstein’s style becomes his own. Whether it is something as banal as a sofa, or an intricate cityscape, it becomes a dizzying abstraction of lines, patterns, and dots that has become his brand of representation.
I think we’re much smarter than we were. Everybody knows that abstract art can be art, and most people know that they may not like it, even if they understand there’s another purpose to it.
