Something Simple, Velvet Inspiration


Following the DailyCreate idea of ‘something simplistic’ I decided to take a single photograph of a banana being held up by one of my hands. This is, in fact something simple however to many people the image of a banana by itself can hold a lot more meaning. The standalone Banana, at least for me brought back memories of Andy Warhol and the Velvet Underground – a band consisting of the famous Lou Reed; instrumental genius John Cale, Sterling Morrison and Angus MacLise (and obviously the band featured the female artist Nico in a multitude of songs). Much like the image I presented for the DailyCreate, the Velvet Underground had a simple message of love, equality and expression – something mirrored by the idea of recruiting super-famous artist Andy Warhol to create their Album cover for their likewise named album ‘The Velvet Underground’. Understandingly the ideas behind my  image made me question myself whether it was truly simple – however this just proved to me that meaning can be found behind anything, and in this modern age almost every art form has become a reference upon itself.
