No More Wire Hangovers

from the "Dark Sparkling Starlets" collection



Says Loveless on (where the piece is on sale for $7,500):

On May 13th, 1977, through the Campbell Funeral Home in New York, Joan Crawford was buried at 11am. On May 13th, 1977, I was born at 11:00am on the same coast at the Greenville General Hospital in Greenville, South Carolina. While I may not be her reincarnated, that simple fact is one of the weirdest coincidences in my life.

Of course my obsession with Joan Crawford was not about this fact, but more so of her tragic retelling of her life via Christina Crawford’s book/movie “Mommie Dearest”. I’ve always been fascinated with the wicked, primarily because of my own childhood, so when I first saw this film I was transfixed. This piece, entitled “No More Wire Hangovers” was my first portrait of a starlet, and resides under the collection “Dark Sparkling Starlets”, in where I focus on the more turbulent personalities in old Hollywood.

2011. No More Wire Hangovers. By Tennessee Loveless.
