Warhol's Wisdom

Recently, I was fortunate to view an installation of Warhol's Shadows, 102 screenprinted and handpainted variations of a photo of shadows from the corner of his studio.

I find a lot of inspiration in other forms of art, but in this case the accompanying Warhol quote captured my imagination and humour:
'Someone asked me if I thought they [the Shadows canvases] were art and I said no. You see, the opening party had disco. I guess that makes them disco decor.
This show will be like all the others. The review will be bad - my reviews always are. But the reviews of the party will be terrific.'
