This work is from my series "Big Issues" which will debut in London in Sept 2015. The work is all made from Vogue magazines and depicts the pretty and the ugly side of fashion publications. Thriving since its inception in 1892, “Vogue’s” title translates to “an expression of popularity;” fitting for a magazine dubbed as the world’s most influential. Recognized globally for its fashion and lifestyle editorials packed with the “cult of personality” Wintour has built of her opinionated writers, it’s published monthly in 23 national and regional editions. “Vogue” is dressed in silk and fantasy, and the most famous of the ultra glitterati pose in dresses most girls couldn’t dream themselves into; it’s a romance novel and yet it helps define pop culture and society at large. “Vogue” tackles the biggest issues and how fashion affects them. And it’s what inspired the 20-piece collection of mixed media portraits that I have built to highlight the entire catalogue and history of the magazine. The work is covered in plexiglass and pointed on wood. The work will be available to ship after the closing of the exhibition at the end of September.
