Psychedelic Australian pop artist Martin Sharp died in Sydney on Sunday aged seventy after suffering from a long-term illness, according to a report filed by The Sydney Morning Herald.
In the same interview with Fairfax conducted last year, an ailing Sharp, a close friend of the late Margaret Olley, said, “Life’s a total experiment. You never know what’s going to happen and you’ve got to be able to move fast.”
“I am not one of these so fashionable these days who think there is no God, as if the universe just fell out of the sky, or one found it in one’s pocket… Here we are, in the midst of the creation, endless mysterious, unknowable, magnificent, beautiful and terrible. How? Why? One can only be humble to the creator and hope to be useful whilst one can.
