Anxiety

- by Doris H. David

This week's theme: Pop Art

pop art or Pop Art
n.

A form of art that depicts objects or scenes from everyday life and employs techniques of commercial art and popular illustration.

In the mid-20th century, artists began to explore the consumer culture. They found their inspiration in the images of popular culture. Their use of things such as products, advertisements, comic strips and celebrities resulted in the blurring of the line between commercial and fine art.

Art: Anxiety by Artist Doris H. David
I seem to have an affinity for the Pop Art style as I was totally enraptured by comic books in my youth. Even now, I find myself drawn to them. One April in Chicago, I was privileged to attend a Pop Art exhibit featuring Roy Lichtenstein and he has had a powerful influence on my work. ever since.

This acrylic on stretched canvas depicts an anxious woman looking through a window. She has been waiting for someone for a long time and expected the phone might ring at any moment to allay her fears.
