July 2nd, 2010 by admin

ROY BEACHGIRL by Bob Kessel

If you notice, the dots in Lichtenstein’s art are on a different plane than the line drawing. The dots are there only to represent a halftone from 4 color comic printing. My thinking was, what if one of the dots actually represented something on the line art picture plane? But i decided to use them this time in a witty way (at least to me it seems witty). So, what looks like a red dot? I thought it would be funny to use the dot as a nipple in a nude. The white is bathing suit tan line, which isolates one red dot that represents a nipple.

NUDE WITH TAN LINES by Bob Kessel

Another Roy Lichtenstein dots picture. There is usually a card with title of artwork next to pictures in gallery. When a picture is sold, the gallery puts a red dot sticker next to it. The large circle represents a spot light, which usually is on artwork in gallery. For me it echoes the circular dot theme and gives interest to the “negative” space (that is if you consider the “painting of dots” to be the “positive” space, even though it is open to the surrounding white paper and therefore by definition “nothing”. WHEW! Does that make any sense?
