Meaning & Analysis

The Perfect/Imperfect series were executed between the years of 1978 and 1995. These prints are sensational examples of the varied technical and formal strategies Lichtenstein employed throughout his career. What further sets the Perfect/Imperfect series apart is that the subject matter is entirely self-generated. Rather than deriving his shapes from mass-produced images, Lichtenstein bases both series on an original design. Nevertheless, the two sequences represent the subject matter of pure abstraction quite differently. As opposed to his Perfect prints, where the geometrically precise forms enforce boundaries, the Imperfect prints humorously undermine pictorial limitations.

Imperfect (C. 224), finalised in 1988, is primarily composed of controlled and continuous lines. In this work, Lichtenstein presents an interconnected web of flat geometrical areas in light fuchsia and scarlet. The middle of the composition is adorned by stripes and dots, bordered by strict black contours. Certain lines go out beyond the rectangular base of the print, as if they missed the edge somehow, subtly piercing the alabaster backdrop.
