Christopher Makos, Altered Image (Detail)

1981



Andy Warhol signed items, ltd edn prints and more @ ebay.com (direct link to signed items) - just checked and a bigger selection than I have seen everywhere else - imagine having something the great man touched!

"I'm fascinated by boys who spend their lives trying to be complete girls, because they have to work so hard - double time - getting rid of all the tell - tale signs and drawing in all the female signs. I'm not saying it's the right thing to do, I'm not saying it's a good idea, I'm not saying it's not self - defeating and self - destructive, and I'm not saying it's not possibly the single most absurd thing a man can do with his life. What I'm saying is, it's very hard work. You can't take that away from them. It's hard work to look like the complete opposite of what nature made you and then to be an imitation of what was only a fantasy woman in the first place. When they took movie stars and stuck them in the kitchen, they weren't stars any more - they were just like you and me. Drag Queens are reminders that some stars aren't just like you and me."
