"Beauty is only a look. It has nothing to do with what I'm like inside." ~ Sharon Tate
"I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I'm out of control, and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you don't deserve me at my best." ~ Marilyn Monroe
Tasmanian portraiture artist, Andrew Causon's, exhibition ~ "Hollywood Heroines Come to Hobart" ~ is sensational! This powerful exhibition demonstrates Andrew's skill and imagination in portraiture. By creatively capturing the essence and beauty of each of his starlets ~ Audrey Hepburn, Judy Garland, Natalie Wood, Rita Hayworth and Shirley MacLaine ~ he reveals his passion and nostalgia for the Hollywood of yesteryear and his "ladies of the silver screen".
"Rita Hayworth (who would have been 100 on the 17th of October) was flamboyant and occasionally wild. She is famous for tossing her glorious hair (Shawshank Redemption) and for breaking two of Glenn Ford’s teeth when she slapped him on screen. This work captures her vitality and colour in an almost fauvist manner. If a painting is meant to portray life, then surely this one is a mirror." ~ Andrew Causon
"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone." ~ Audrey Hepburn
