I Love You Because

Elvis and Lisa Marie by Sarah Doyle

I have work in the Elvis exhibition 'I Love You Because' at A-side B-side gallery to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Elvis Presley going into Sun Studios to make his first ever recording. The show is curated by Chloe Mortimer and Harry Pye

Here is my quote about Elvis from the show:
I was talking to a woman who told me that her mum loved Elvis so much that as a teenager she scratched his name into her forearm with a compass. I wouldn't say my love of Elvis is anything close to that extreme, however I do appreciate a beautiful man when I see one and Elvis certainly was very beautiful in his youth.
I would say that my favourite Elvis song would have to be "In the Ghetto" as I do love a good melodrama.
I have painted Elvis with Priscilla as they are such a beautiful couple and Priscilla's makeup with her winged eyeliner was always amazing. I have also painted him with baby Lisa Marie as I hadn't seen this photo of him with his baby before and thought it was really lovely.

The exhibition opens on July 18th and there is a really fab line up of artists taking part. Here is Harry's blog about the show and the artists on the Rebel Mag
