Andy 03

Guns  i think this is a painting of the gun which was used in an attempt on Andy’s life by a deranged feminist Valerie Solanas

 Solanas was a radical feminist and playwright who had reportedly been turned away by Warhol’s team earlier in the day, after asking for a script that she had given to the artist to be returned.

you may  know  that on 3 June 1968 he was shot and pronounced dead – and it took open-heart massage to bring him back to life. This exhibition at The Whitworth Gallery uncovers how he was influenced by this dark event.

As you might expect I took a camera with me and below are three of my photographs taken the same day

one of which is a manipulation of a photo I took in the Whitworth GallerySitting in a Gallery rld 01 small

And here are two of a series I took through a pub window on the way to the Exhibition

One thought on “Exhibitions ,Exhibitions,Exhibitions

  1. What a very interesting take on life you have, I went to that exhibition at Manchester Art Gallery and found some of it very thought provoking, and some of it not so. Art dahling, I guess. I love all of your photographs and what they portray, your angles and perspectives are a change from the usual humdrum of the modern world. I was a fan of Andy Warhol but didn’t know that he nearly was killed!
    Your Whitworth Gallery image is definitely worthy of portraying widely – excellent.
