“The paintings are all your own”
David Bowie collected all of the fan art he was sent over the years and now the @brooklynmuseum has fulfilled his dream that one day they should be exhibited. We’re posting a piece online every Friday with the hashtag #DavidBowieArt.
Unfortunately, the creators of the majority of the works collected are unknown, but this week a signature is clear and it is that of Karen Kilroy. Is this the same Karen Kilroy known to BowieNet members as Suff? Mother of Dalek? We know she met Bowie in 1978, so it all fits.
Like last week, today’s likeness is of Bowie as Thomas Jerome Newton in the film The Man Who Fell To Earth. But this particular image is perhaps best known for being the cover of Low.
You can enjoy all of the pieces on display at the exhibition until July 15th. Tickets and details of other Bowie-related events at the Brooklyn Museum here.
