Paintings

Description

The paintings investigate Celebrity Culture, popular brand imagery and advertising that take a critical view of political, social and contemporary cultural issues. The paintings embrace an amalgamation of comic superhero mythology, children’s toys, appealing brand names and totems of art history to create a visual language of evolution. The work is a juxtaposition of images, which are comprised together presenting a personal explanation on our contemporary consumer culture. Using recognisable icons only to reconstruct with my own perspective dismantles the American dream. . Having engaged subjects as diverse as violation of innocence, religion, fashion, music, toys, sex symbols, decay upon western society, celebrities, obsession, adoration, perfection, greed, arranging them into current conceptually layered pieces.
