These paintings of pop icons and commercials were rendered by squeezing paint tubes in horizontal lines directly on the canvas to create large television images. The interpretations of famous artworks on TV through this horizontal matrix give a curious effect to the appropriate art works such as "La Grande Jatte" and "Les Demoiselles d'Avignon" when affected by the corresponding T.V. aberration. This same tube squeezing was used for the Jackson Pollock works 1978 and the American Landmarks that followed in 1979, except that the marks are curvilinear and seem random.
