Playing off of my last painting of Kate Moss, I created more images of this “idol worship”. Both in the figures and the way of paint application, I’m using sarcasm to explain the absurdity of looking to others for identity validation. My painting in this style is used as a social commentary- the quickness of the strokes and often unflattering depictions in the images should lower these images to an undesirable place. Depicting this girl culture sarcastically will hopefully lead viewers to consider the negative side of suburbia and the oddness of suburban aspirations.
