The Mask of Audrey

Artist Statement: “This Warholesque series re-imagines old Hollywood pop icons Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn, and explores my fascination with a society in which personas could be manufactured, commoditized, and consumed like products. With reference to the make-up ‘masks’ of these pop symbols, the portraits are rendered using mixed loose powder with bright colours, meticulously and precisely designed to create a highly graphic visual statement. From a distance the visages appear to be perfectly formed. On closer inspection, cracks, and wonderful imperfections are revealed — acknowledging their public personas as carefully constructed illusions.”
