Acrylic on gessoed hardboard, #176
5 x 7', 2009
Three Coke Bottles is an acrylic and silkscreen done by Andy Warhol in 1962. Here it appears as a blank card format on a semi out of focus Campbell's Soup Can 1 (1968), from the book Pop Art by Tilman Osterwold.
I leave you with famous quotes by Andy Warhol:
-''I am a deeply superficial person''.
-''Everybody must have a fantasy''.
-''Art is what you can get away with''.
-''Think rich, look poor''.
-''TV is not something to watch, but something to be on''.
-''Employees make the best dates. You don't have to pick them up and they're always tax- deductible''.
and of course,
-''In the future, everybody will be world famous for 15 minutes''.
This is the final piece for my solo show, Near & Far that opens this evening at Handworks Gallery in Saint John, NB.
