"Give me time and I'll give you a revolution."
"You can only go forward by making mistakes."
"I find beauty in the grotesque, like most artists."
So so true!
These are the words of Lee (Alexander McQueen)! I fell in love with him one night after spending hours watching his theatrical fashion shows and collections that shocks and wow the public! Things he said makes my eyes lit up - it was like listening to myself speak.
The injection of metallic studs onto the letter "C" of McQueen, in the painting, symbolizes his unnerving energy and strength in each of his collection. The electric blue pom pom reflects yet his soft tender nature and love for his mother.
Lastly, I dripped WAX over my signature as a symbol of respect for the deceased.
"McQueen knew he could not bear to attend the funeral of his mother, which had been scheduled for February 12. His much-loved dog Minter had been diagnosed with cancer. Death for him seemed like an escape, a blessed relief, a step towards the kind of thought-free existence that he had craved for so long " - NEWSWEEK
