Elvis - Andy Warhol - Self portrait series

A study of illusion and reality, parody, humour and humanity

At first, I hesitated to feinin a work by Andy Warhol as I felt his presence too mundane, plain and uncouth. Yet in this duplication, I found myself uplifted unto a figure that had the lightness of a hero. In it, this was a man that was heavyset with his footing placed firmly on the ground. I could see that he was an actor distinctively American, an action moment captured in time. Yet this was an actor who was persistently needy, wild and loud. He gave only his heart to his profession, his movements, shimmering in the spotlight. Love to be back

In this feinin I also knew how wonderfully and clever the montage felt. Smooth, precise, ageless, trusting, prophetical.
