POLYPTYCH dives in a constant zoom-in in the modern status of fashion models as icons in a society of image where symbols and references are demultiplicated until they loose their meaning.
The dynamic collage-artworks mix codes and compositions from religious imagery, classical and neo-classical architecture, with strong natural apocalyptic background textures and paint strokes.
The compositions also include deconstructed alphabets sampling from the model's 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 worshipping images of beauty.
