Lady Warhol by Christopher Makos

Lady Warhol is Makos’ interpretation of Man Ray’s collaboration with Duchamp. While Man Ray’s images were a play on, Duchamp’s character, Sélavy’s mysterious persona, Makos, in his depiction, sought to instead exaggerate Warhol’s pale fragility.

Fifty of the three-hundred forty nine portraits make up the core of the series that portrays a pallid Warhol in a shirt and tie against a white wall. Via wigs, hard make-up, and poses, we witness how Warhol transforms himself into his alter ego Lady Warhol.
