Balanced values

Balance and asymmetry...breaking the centrality of religious much space on the right is necessary to counter-balance the activity and figure on the left? And that sharp contrast edge created by the dark jacket against the white much gray is needed to counter that weight/volume?

Mapplethorpe shows us how much in the amazing portrait, not only a visually appealing piece, but an image that captures Andy Warhol as a artist and man of extremes...the obsession with fame and attention juxtaposed next to his social awkwardness...needing something so badly, but unable to see it fully realized.
