Words from Warhol

I’m sitting in the art room now sorting out all the SOVA (Study of Visual Art) notes and I came across one article on Andy Warhol that I haven’t read yet. So I decided to come blog even though I can’t seem to change the bloody font to Helvetica !@#$#@. It starts off with this quote:

“I’d been hurt a lot to the degree you can only hurt if you care a lot. So I guess I did care a lot, in the days before… ‘pop art’…”

I wonder if I (or we) could learn a thing or two from Warhol. Even though I’ve always stood by the whole I’d-rather-have-experienced-the-pain-than-be-some-unfeeling-bitch-or-naive-juvenile-being… Anyway this is what he says:

“Sometimes people let the same problem make them miserable for years when they could just say, ‘So what.’ That’s one of my favourite things to say, ‘So what’.

‘My mother didn’t love me.’ So what.

‘My husband won’t ball me.’ So what.

‘I’m a success by I’m still alone.’ So what.

I don’t know how I made it through all the years before I learned how to do that trick. It took a long time for me to learn it, but once you do, you never forget.”
