Critical Review

Twin Mirrors was executed in 1970 and presents two conjoined mirrors. The oblong shapes are rendered black and white, with indigo details. Monochrome dots span the rectangular surface, alluding to the reflective and uneven attributes of glass. Jagged lines are arranged near the edges of the canvas, indicating two respective frameworks. Lichtenstein’s use of geometric forms and intricate details both constitute and obscure his subject matter. The mirrors are presented frontally, displaying the complete absence of reflections. As such, Twin Mirrors is as much a parody, as it is an illustration of mirrors.

Over the course of his career, Lichtenstein embarked on several other series dealing with vision and representation. His Water Lilies and Reflections, for instance, explore various perceptions of light and reflection. Meanwhile, Lichtenstein’s Entablaturesdelve further into object painting, reproducing enlarged architectural fragments as their main composition.
