Catalogue Note

“Nothing can always be the subject of something. I mean, what’s nice about those paintings is you could do them every five years… anytime you wanted to, when you had the time…because there’s nothing to read into them… because even if the paints stayed the same, everything else – and everyone else – would have changed.”

Andy Warhol cited in: Exh. Cat., New York, Gagosian Gallery, Cast a Cold Eye: The Late Work of Andy Warhol, 2006, p. 198
