The picture both disperses and reifies the female body, presenting it as both painterly performance and mechanical thing. Put another way, the images in a tabular picture can be developed through processes that are serial and exchangeable, and which accumulate to give it what Foster sees as its interpretive depth.
For although Foster begins by puzzling over the political valence of Pop art, he ends up not quite sure where he stands on this issue. What gets in the way? The problem may be the artists themselves. Ultimately, Foster does not seem to trust how they feel — or perhaps better, trust everything they feel — about contemporary life. But should we discount the political possibilities of that delight? What they saw there transfixed them: sex and death, of course, but also everything high art seemed to lack — boundless energy, absurdity, familiarity and the canned comforts of shop-bought soup.
