Commented on superficiality:
Highly emotional content vs impersonal handling
I'm not really sure what social message my art carries, if any. And I don't really want it to carry one. I'm not interested in the subject matter to try to teach society anything, or to try to better our world in any way.

Lichenstein aimed to make his work
"as artificial as possible"

"I often don't even remember what most of them are about. I obviously know in the beginning what I'm painting, and that it will be funny or ironic. But I try to suppress that while I'm doing them. The subjects aren't what hold my interest."

"In America the biggest is the best."
