ANDY WARHOL’S PENCIL AND PAPER

Dear readers, sorry for being absent for such a long time! Almost two month since my last post…I was working on some various projects. Some to earn money and some others to become “rich and famous”…
Beside working my ass off we bought a wonderful piece of land – which took a lot of time. I’m so happy about this, you can’t imagine! It’s pretty close to Berlin near one of the most beautiful lakes around Berlin! No one cared about during the past 20 years – so it was like a jungle when we first saw it – trees and squirrels celebrated a lot of parties there (and I really hope they won’t stop)! That was the main reason why I fell in love instantly, beside a little house which was build in the twenties or thirties and a huge shed! I’m planning to build my studio out there in the woods – silence, lovely flowers and trees are growing, birds are singing, no internet, – best preconditions to concentrate on work! I’m gonna post a few pictures as soon as it is showable. Now, finally, a further contribution to you my dear readers!

CLICKETY CANDY: These unique still-live polaroids were taken by Andy Warhol between 1977 and 1983. He referred to his Polaroid Big Shot camera, which he purchased in 1970, as his “pencil and paper.” A selection of 70 Polaroids was on view at the Paul Kasmin Gallery. What a pity that I haven’t seen the exhibition! You can find more here. Hope you like them! Happy wednesday!

    • My husband was born in Berlin and then moved to Canada when he was 15. We visited Berlin and other parts of Germany, both before and after the Wall came down. I was surprised to find out how lovely Berlin and the area around it was (and is). I guess I still had that impression from the old newsreels that aired in movie theaters in North America–all black & white, dreary and full of rubble. Not so! We also spent a while in Spreewald, which is beautiful like a dream.

      Watch out for that gardening–it can become addictive;-).

      • I’m really happy you liked visiting my country! I absolutely agree with you – the Spreewald is so beautifull and there are so many secret hiding places – even for me! I grew up in this black and white world…therefore I’m addicted to garish colors, haha. Oh, and the “gardening thing” already became addictive!!! I love it!
