“Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.”
This is the quote in binary code buried under the painted squares of this artwork.I saw it, loved it, and had to express it in a way fitting for me to express. Why is the binary code covered? In the nature of Andy’s insistence that his work was devoid of meaning, often comprised of rudimentary washes of colour over stolen images, (he even called his studio ‘the Factory’), I thought the visible code a bit too literal and inappropriate. I even thought twice about offering this explanation of it… It is rumoured that he wanted his tombstone to simply state, “Figment”.
But thank you for the resoundingly simple and solid advice that brought me around to begin producing art again Mr. Warhol.
