Our Hong Kong correspondent, Layla Kawashima, recently stopped by the Gagosian to take some photos of the Roy Lichtenstein exhibition before it closed. Landscapes in the Chinese Style consists of a collection of lesser known works from the famous pop artist that features his reinterpretation of traditional Chinese painting. He states: “I think (the Chinese landscapes) impress people with having somewhat the same kind of mystery (historical) Chinese paintings have, but in my mind it’s a sort of pseudo-contemplative or mechanical subtlety…I’m not seriously doing a kind of Zen-like salute to the beauty of nature. It’s really supposed to look like a printed version.”
More photos after the jump…
