Prints from Roy Lichtenstein's "Brushstroke Figure Series" are Pop art renderings of Abstract Expressionist paint swipes that wind up being faintly representational. They are fun loving, art-smart prints that toy with the language of mechanical Cubism, Surrealism and the comic strip while pushing hard on the technical end too. Each is a composite of lithograph, woodcut, screen print and encaustic. The multiple media give Lichtenstein's trademark screen print dots and cartoony brush strokes a genuine richness of surface that further stretches the work into a self parody about what looks smart and what looks like art. (Glenn-Dash Gallery, 962 N. La Brea Ave., to July 15.)
