José Dávila strangely modifies Roy Lichtenstein’s Ohhh… Alright… from 1964. While the original features the close-up face of a women speaking on the phone with a speech bubble revealing a fragment of her conversation, Dávila’s version further obfuscates the interrupted narrative, removing the woman from the picture altogether and leaving only her curios reply, “Ohhh… Alright”, compelling the viewer to question the weight of Lichtenstein’s proposal.
