Ohhh … Alright… (1964)
After the Impressionists and after Cubism there was Pop Art, Introduced by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein (comic book imagery). Lichtenstein employed a unique form of painting called the Benday dot technique, in which small, closely-knit dots of paint were applied to form a much larger image. The goal was always to use images of popular (as opposed to elitist) culture in art. In pop art, material is sometimes visually removed from its known context, isolated, or combined with unrelated material. Following up on that trend, we have removed the painting in Picasso’s and Lichtenstein work, and while the canvas remains, we have replaced it with needle work. The idea was to blur the boundaries between "high" art and "low" culture. The concept that there is no hierarchy of culture and that art may borrow from any source has been one of the most influential characteristics of Pop art.
