“This show aims to combine art with Marshall’s journalistic perspective in also using quotations to give insight into the pieces and the enigmatic icon.
The title of the piece; “Never Complain, Never Explain” alludes to an interview in which Kate discusses what she learnt from Johnny Depp; “I was lucky to be with Johnny at that stage. He taught me a lot about fame. He told me ‘never complain, never explain’”.
A selection of these Kate Moss quotations will also appear on our walls to punctuate the artwork. Marshall’s work has focused on subjects who are ‘legendary’, as opposed to ‘famous’; “celebrity can be so short-lived these days, but not so with Kate. While other celebrities have come and gone, Kate has stayed. Kate’s not just a survivor and she’s not hanging onto fame. She grows bigger, brighter and more iconic each year”. ”
