Catalogue Note

“There is something humorous about doing a sunset in a solidified way, especially the rays, because a sunset has little or no specific form. It is like the explosions. It’s true that they may have some kind of form at any particular moment, but they are never really perceived as defined shape…It makes something ephemeral completely concrete.”
Roy Lichtenstein
