Roy Lichtenstein Reflections on Hair, from the Reflections Series, 1990 is a playful work of art indicative of graphic imagery such as comics and advertisements. Lichtenstein’s iconic theme of comic-like works is a running vein throughout his vast oeuvre. Reflections is important in that Lichtenstein incorporates multimedia and relates to his Mirrors paintings of the early seventies. Dots, stripes, mirrors, foils, and brushstrokes are used in this seven print series. Lichtenstein extends the use of reflective foil that adds a metallic texture. Reflections on Hair guides us through his pioneering style of Pop art, inclusively drawing each one of his onlookers in. Creatively exploring his own unique style and language, Lichtenstein arouses a kind of dialogue with the art as well as the viewer. Evolved in various ways, the narrative quality that is enhanced throughout this series creates depth into his artistry as a print maker. Holding a tight composition with complex figurations of colorful and petite dots, Roy Lichtenstein produces an enigmatic work of art.
