Today saw the opening of a new exhibition at The Tate Modern in London. Lichtenstein: A Retrospective brings together 125 of Roy Lichtenstein most recognised paintings and sculptures. Lichtenstein was well renowned for his colourful large-scale Pop Art works based on comic strips.
Fittingly, today we are delighted to feature a recent collection of body painting works from Emma Hack in Australia inspired by Roy.
POP! explores Emma’s fascination with the pop art genre – a fun, modern day approach into the comic-inspired work of Roy Lichtenstein. Emma’s heroines are not helpless however, they are strong women. The collection is split in to 3 themes, ‘The Optimists’, ‘Lessons in Love’ and ‘.com’ as Emma explains in the video below.
‘The Optimists’ – offering a wider crop – looking at the positive side of life.
‘Lessons of Love’ – messages to get over that bad break-up.
‘.com’ – based on a social media theme, drawing the girls into todays .com culture.
