Andy Vs Robin....

....Today Chris and I went to the Hayward Gallery to see the Andy Warhol and Robin Rhode exhibitions. I didn't really know whether or not I was a Warhol fan before today, but I have realised that I'm not. The show was over bearing and much too focused on his random video pieces that I had no patience to endure. His photographs were intriguing in that they captured celebrities of the time and his screen prints are iconic, but they were few and far between. The Robin Rhode show, in contrast, was superb - fresh, new, fun and purposeful. Instantly understandable, I appreciated this work straight away...more so for seeing it after Mr. Warhol!

Warhol ('s rubbish)

Robin Rhode (is very good).
