Warhol, Kiefer and Richter at SFMOMA

On a recent stay in San Francisco I visited SFMOMA thinking that the main attraction would be the Andy Warhol Exhibition — From A to B and Back Again, but that was not the case. Warhol’s (1928–1987) exhibition was beautiful and interestingly curated. I am always amazed at his well cultivated persona and willingness to experiment with new materials and techniques. He understood and brought forward the power of images in our lives. The depth of his religious practice always fascinated me, especially in light of his known drug use, which allowed him the freedom from his innate inhibitions and shyness.
