Allison Zuckerman has made a new body of work that celebrates Lichtenstein (1923-1997), one of her painting heroes, whose approach to image making she has in many ways emulated and built upon in her own practice. Zuckerman sees Lichtenstein as an artist whose work evinces a deep investment in Art History that he presents using the visual language of his own time. Whereas Lichtenstein used the benday dot to signify the advent of mechanically reproduced imagery and mass media, Zuckerman uses the square motif of the pixel. In other words: the pixel in her work is the contemporary analogue to Lichtenstein’s benday dot. Passage of rhinestone grids similarly stand in for the benday dot motif while also referencing the advent of Instagram filters.
