It’s been a hell of a week here. A week where I decided, seeing as though the Missies were back at school, to have a couple of health related things all done in the same week.
This seemed like a good idea at the time, but it left me a bit battered and emotionally drained.
Battered because I had a very small suspicious looking thingy on my nose sliced off and it is very hard (impossible?) to hide a crater right on the tip of your nose. It’s in my line of vision and annoying my greatly, but I don’t have skin cancer so all is good.
Emotionally drained as my pap test came back with dodgy results (again). It’s been a couple of years since I last fought with my cervix and I’d finally graduated to annual pap tests, but the universe or whomever decided I was being way too confident. So, it feels a little like Groundhog Day except I have to see a new gynaecologist, which is disappointing as I’d got to the point with my Australian doctor where we could discuss Santa and make eye contact while he was performing a colposcopy on me.
On the bright side, I do not have cancer on my nose or on my cervix.
So, battered and drained I took some time out to see the Andy Warhol: 15 Minutes Eternal exhibit at the Arts Science museum .I am no art aficionado. I can not stare at art and pontificate about its beauty and themes. I like to look at accessible art and Andy Warhol’s penchant for Pop Art suits me to a tee.
The exhibit is divided up into different representing the different phases of Andy’s work, starting with his ink illustrations and ending with his celebrity portraits. I particularly liked his screen prints, including his Campbell Soup and Marilyn Monroe series. The only piece of my school artwork I still have is a series of screen prints I did of Marilyn Monroe in Year 11, for which I got 19/20. My homage to Mr Warhol, if you will.
I really wanted to buy a coffee mug from the exhibit but (bizarrely?) they didn’t have any. They did have freeze-dried ice cream, though……
