    Sadie Lee's Star Test Interview

Who would play you in the film of your life?
  In my dreams Johnny Depp in Chanel lipstick but in reality I'll play me and Ulma Thurman all my ex-girlfriends.
Which painting would you nick from the national gallery?
  I would rather do a trolley dash around the Metropolitan Museum of Art but I suppose it would have to be Paul Delaroche 'The execution of Lady Jane Grey'
If you could paint anyone in the world who would it be?
  My wish list includes Marianne Faithful, Yoko Ono, Cynthia Payne and Jo Brand get the picture!
What's your worst christmas present ever?
  Bright green knee high socks with toes!
Damien hirst - hero or zero?
  Unfashionably I take my hat off to the man. I don't think I'd want to get stuck in a lift with him but I think he deserves the praises he so frequently gets bestowed on him.
If your paintings were to be hung in the tate gallery who would you like to be next to?
  Jenny Holzer's inflammatory essays pip Gillian Wearing to the post.
Where do you get your inspiration for paintings?
  They're all of real people, so their behaviour will suggest certain images but there are common themes running through like theatricality and ambiguous facial expression.
Which song sums up your paintings?
  Atmosperically 'At Seventeen' by Janis Ian, for the one line 'for ugly duckling girls like me'.
Which famous person would you like to get drunk with?
  Dorothy Parker, but I'd probably be the butt of her jokes!
If you could take one of your paintings to a desert island which would it be?
  The biggest one - Ame Lame 'Amy's Room' and use it as a raft to get away but my favourite is 'Pinky' at the moment.
