Modern Art Monday Presents: Roy Lichtenstein, Artists Studio: Foot Medication

By the 1970s, Roy Lichtenstein’s comic-strip style of painting had become his trademark. While he had adapted his early compositions from actual comic books, here Lichtenstein referred to an art historical rather than a pop culture source: Henri Matisse’s Red Studio (1911, in the collection of MoMA), which features Matisse’s canvases casually set around a room. Into the flattened studio space of Artists Studio Foot Medication (1974), Lichtenstein similarly inserted whole of partial versions of his own real and imagined artworks across a range of subject matter, including geometric abstraction. This painting’s title calls out the 1962 print Foot Medication, reimagined as a monumental painting at the upper left. This kind of self-quotation, at once playful and thoughtful, would become anther feature of Lichtenstein’s production.

We last saw the art of Marc Dennis at the late Hasted Kraeutler Gallery for his January 2011 exhibit, An Artist, A Curator and a Rabbi Walk Into a Bar . . .. As you can see by the title of this painting, his work is still very meta. But really, shouldn’t it say that these guys are walking into an Art Museum? Just sayin’.

Marc Dennis, Ironman, Captain America, and a Russian Mobster Walk Into a Bar is part of How Many Miles to Babylon: Recent Paintings from Los Angeles and New York On Exhibit Through February 27th, 2016, at C24 Gallery, Located 560 West 24th Street, In the Chelsea Gallery District.

The Brazilian twins and street artist duo known as Os Gemeos have put up this fun mural on Houston just West of Bowery, which shows one of their signature characters tagging the building with the name Os Gemeos. Very meta indeed!

It’s not every day that you walk by an art exhibit whose title is the front end of a Meta Joke, and in this case that title is exactly what drew us in to Hasted Kraeutler Gallery for a quick look at Marc Dennis’ latest collection of hyper-realist paintings, playfully entitled An Artist, A Curator and a Rabbi Walk Into a Bar . . .
