At a business meeting where we stayed for several days, the hotel put up these painting in its lobby area.

The artist is Léon represented by Samhart gallery and the hotel is Chalet Royalp Hôtel at Villars-sur-Ollons. Hope they sell well, this is fun.

We could use some Pop Art to lighten up – 21st century superhero/villain presented in Roy Lichtenstein style – bold colors, block contours and Ben-Day dots.

Some of these superheros/villains come from comic strips from which Lichtenstein originally borrowed for his works.

The very tight framing is done well – just enough to allow the viewer to recognize the character while retaining the tension generated by the closeness.

Think cat and mouse.

The names mentioned above next to the paintings are not the actual titles ( I did not look at them closely) – I took these photos rather quickly during breaks from the meetings.
