Cinema Series, Art in the Dark, Western Park, Auckland, New Zealand 2012
The pop legacy Andy Warhol left was the art world’s first foray in to the idea of ‘celebrity artist’. In my research of the artist, it seems with every new fact I learn, I seem to vacillate between thinking he was either a genius or a complete hack. After seeing the mesmerising screen tests he made at the Factory in the 60′s, I had to make my own. Jury is still out on genius vs. hack argument.

My favourite of his screen tests – Edie Sedgwick.
