MARILYNS

Would I have the chance to be reborn as an artist of choice, Andy Warhol would be on top of my list. He is such an important figure exposing pop culture to art. His Marilyn silkscreen prints are a pillar of contemporary art history. I was interested in taking this well know image and transform it into my language. Finally, give the Marilyns a body. Black painted bodies in front of a black wall. The faces painted were inspired by the Warhol silkscreens. A simple idea – often, simple ideas are the best.

All photos are an edition of three, inkjet on paper, black frame.

They have been only shown ones all together at Nils Staerk Gallery, Copenhagen.
