ROY LICHTENSTEIN Reflections on Brushstrokes, from the Reflections Series, 1990

Retna, Untitled, 2014 - Retna Retna

Retna Retna Retna, Untitled, 2014 This particular painting is executed with this typographic style, however with an underlying expressionism. While the arrangement of symbols and lines is systematic and carefully placed, RETNA exercises his artistic freedom by embracing the spontaneity of acrylic paint. Drips of paint slide down the canvas in thin, wavering lines. In other areas watered down acrylic blurs the hard edges of RETNA’s otherwise crisp script. These drips disrupt the uniformity of the composition ever so slightly, while mirroring the downward motion of RETNA’s brushstrokes. One cannot overlook the bright coloration of this painting. The pungent palette of red, white and blue is vivid, strong, bold, and laden with symbolism. RETNA’s paintings are not only mesmerizing for their striking visual appeal, but also for their ability to provide the engagement that the contemporary art admirer yearns for. The viewer feels challenged to decipher the meaning; this first instinct propelled by our relationship with the written word.

Created in 2014, RETNA Untitled, 2014 is an acrylic on canvas. A unique original work, this painting is.hand-signed and titled by RETNA (1979 - ) on verso.
