Roy Lichtenstein Amsterdam – 3D installation room
What’s behind Roy Lichtenstein’s work?
Lichtenstein’s art seems ‘easy’ to understand. But beneath the surface it is an intellectual, rationalistic art, premeditated and realised through a complex process of a deconstruction and reconstruction of the image: bold lines associated with flat colours, thousands of regular dots, a magnified halftone screen that suggests the idea of chiaroscuro and even the impression of reflections of light.
Right from the start, Roy Lichtenstein’s sophisticated art has had been an uninterrupted force of seduction impacting visual culture and communication, and will continue to do so for a long time to come.
