About Celebratising



In this multidisciplinary series, I deal with not only my fascination of celebrity, but modern day culture's obsession with it. The overwhelming desperation of people, who desire to be famous or be loved by a celebrity, if only for a night, sparked the idea for my series. I have often questioned why fine artists, such as myself, cannot gain fame in the pop world without being considered "low brow". I have fabricated an alternate reality in which art world celebrity and pop world celebrity are one in the same, where an artist like myself is a star. My work explores what drives people to chase fame at any cost or humiliation and why people choose a lifestyle with such baggage in which they are constantly in the spotlight and continually objectified, only fueling the objectification of other "common" people who aspire to be with them.
