Laurie Lambrecht: "From the Studio of Roy Lichtenstein" at Blue Sky Gallery, and on NPR

Photographer Laurie Lambrecht worked as an assistant for Pop painter Roy Lichtenstein in the early 90s. While working with him on a major retrospective of his work, she grew close to him, and photographed him in his workspace. She also photographed collections of objects and images, reinterpreting some of his materials to make her own work. There is some very cool imagery that combines elements of Lichtenstein's paintings along with the artist himself--it's as if he has stepped inside his own paintings, and Lambrecht has offered us a rare glimpse of Lichtenstein's imagination.

The exhibit is at Blue Sky Gallery in Portland from July 1, 2010, to August 1, 2010.  The gallery is located at 122 NW 8th Avenue, Portland, OR.

NPR did a story on Lambrecht's exhibit for their online feature Daily Picture Show.
