Pop influenced series Iconogasm presents overarching themes of sex, religion, class, politics, lifestyle, and history into conceptual portraits. These themes are layered with symbolic details found in modern day culture. The portraits invite the viewer to re-consider the cultural references attached to the symbols. Combined, they present new symbols deriving from the meaning of the individual references. By incorporating aspects of costume, the portraits are developed as caricatures of culture. Through the hyperreal aesthetic of artificial lighting and digital manipulation, I aim to explore the distinctions of art versus commercial dialogue.
