Death of an Icon
The premise of my work is to challenge perception of icons, in an age of mass reproduction and to trace uncontaminated original and its inevitable decay. It addresses recognizability and facelessness, demarcating personalized and depersonalized identity through substitution, mediation and commoditization. Drawing from mythology, politics, pop culture, ads, signage, my works are simply a way to emulate the process of materialization of a thought or imagination. It bears within it clues of transformation.
