Executed in 1992, Wallpaper With Blue Floor Interior belongs to Roy Lichtenstein’s intricate Interior series. Completed towards the end of the artist’s career, the sequence was inspired by clippings and images collected from ordinary furniture advertisements. This signed screen print in colours was manufactured as part of a limited edition of 300.
Lichtenstein’s Interior works of the early 1990s takes the ultimate image of quotidian domesticity as its main subject matter. The intricate collection is rendered in the artist’s characteristic palette of bold primary colours, delineated outlines, and Ben Day dots.
Lichtenstein’s Interior prints reflect the artist’s fascination with the paradoxical relationship between fine art and commercial design. The sequence is also a unique manifestation of the varied conceptual ideas and technical skills honed by the artist throughout his life. The prints also demonstrate the profound awareness Lichtenstein had of art history, and of his crucial position within it.
The present work, Wallpaper With Blue Floor from 1992, showcases Lichtenstein’s career-long fascination with the visual effects of light and reflection. Characterised by a highly stylised aesthetic of a mundane domestic space, Lichtenstein in this work uses defined contouring, regimented pattern, and block colours. A floor-length mirror that takes up the entire wall reflects the rest of the room. It mirrors the complex pattern of the dizzying carpet, hinting at the rest of the room that would be invisible had there only been a solid wall ahead of us. The perspective is distorted, with flat surface planes contrasting with the receding depth offered by the mirror.
