Fun with pop art

August 12, 2012 at 11:05 am 2 comments

Yesterday Mr A and I had an afternoon of Benday dots and comic characters at the Roy Lichtenstein Pop Remix exhibition at the QUT Art Museum in Brisbane. Having previously only been exposed what we’d thought were Lichtenstein screenprints, we were surprised and delighted to learn that he’d made series of woodcuts during the 1950s (some of which are part of this exhibition – I loved ‘A Cherokee Brave’) and that woodcarving had remained part of his modus operandi in his later work. The photo below shows his ‘Peace Through Chemistry’ I and III lithographs from 1970. It’s a touring show from the National Gallery of Australia and is on until August 26 if you want to take a look.

    Hi Eileen! Great post about a great exhibition. I’m actually at QUT these days, where part of my job is marketing the QUT Art Museum. Hope all is well 🙂
