Big Sue

Tuesday 1st July 2008

I was really pleased to have a quick drink last night with an old friend from London, Sue Tilley, who was in NY to see her film maker friend Jeff Sharp who's in the process of turning her book on Leigh Bowery into a movie ( hell knows who they're going to cast as Leigh, but anyway...!). She was still reeling from the fracas caused when Lucian Freud's painting of her ("Benefits Supervisor Sleeping")sold for a record $34 million plus...

Sue Tilley and me

That painting..."Benefits Officer Sleeping"

One of Lucian Freud's etching's of Sue, which I particularly like, and was recently shown at MOMA.

The fabulous Sue
