Many words have been written about David Bowie this week and many more will be written in years to come. His impact is everlasting and although he has moved on from the physical world, we will always have the art he left behind to move us forward.
David Bowie was the glamorous outsider who spoke to our sensitive souls. He made gender his play thing which allowed him to embody anyone and everyone. Sometimes an astronaut, sometimes a glamour queen and sometimes dapper, Bowie integrated his entire being into his art. Maybe that’s why it always felt so pure.
Bowie’s public image as art continues with his passing. His last works: Blackstar, his final album and Lazarus, an off-Broadway play, take us into the mind of a man preparing to die. Bowie was molding his legacy for us, leaving us a piece of him to explore and find peace in his passing.
David Bowie was never just a musician. His influence touched all artists, including hair stylists! Sine Qua Non will miss surely Bowie but will continue to find inspiration in the vast body of work he is leaving behind.
