What is the connection between popular culture and high art?
Roy Lichtenstein was an American pop artist. He was a founder and foremost practitioner of Pop art, a movement that countered the techniques and concepts of Abstract Expressionism with images and techniques taken from popular culture. Lichtenstein made paintings that were designed to look like comic images, and he was influenced by popular advertising and the comic book style.
Lichtenstein tended to use blond girls as the heroines in his paintings,with captions attached to the paintings to describe the heroine's plight or powers. This series projects photos of the paintings of the artist Roy Lichtenstein onto a blond model, Dafne, using a mini-beamer.
