POLYPTYCH constantly zooms in on the modern status of fashion models as icons in an image-driven society where symbols and references are de-multiplied until they lose their meaning.
The dynamic collage-artworks mix codes and compositions from religious imagery, classical and neoclassical architecture, with strong natural apocalyptic background textures and paint strokes. The compositions also include deconstructed alphabets sampling models’ names, depicting the loss of identity that occurs when the girl becomes a cherished image – an icon, rather than a singular person.
We abstract ourselves in worshiping images of beauty.
