David Bowie – Stardust To Ashes

Collage Assemblage
60cm x 50cm

I began working on Stardust To Ashes, my tribute to Bowie the day after he passed away. Creating the collage proved to be a cathartic experience, and helped me recover from the shock of his sudden death.

I meditated on his character, this boundary-crashing, experimental chameleon and listened again and again to the rich and strangely beautiful songs on his 25th and final album Blackstar, looking for clues.

There is a nod to his alter egos with the costumed mannequins in the background, a reference to the Dorian Gray forever young quality he exuded with the self portrait beneath his arm and the peacocks are present as a symbol of resurrection.
