Isabelle Collin Dufresne, the French-born artist, actress and author known as Ultra Violet was the beauty among the superstars of Andy Warhol’s glory days at his studio.
Ms. Collin Dufresne was in her late 20s when she met Warhol while having tea at the St. Regis Hotel with the artist Salvador Dalí, a lover and an earlier mentor. It was 1964, and Warhol immediately expressed interest in having her in his films.
I've always been greatly influenced and inspired by Warhol. “Ultraviolet" is one in a series of six new original portraits of Warhol's Factory Superstars. I begin by making several drawings of each subject based on various historical references. These drawings are torn and cut apart into pieces so that I can "audition" them until they make a portrait of the subject.
