style is never out of fashion

In this series of twenty watercolours images based on photographs are composed. The photographs were selected from socio-political, fashion and life-style magazines. The poses of the model are slightly unhinged. The journalistic photographs lose their veracity by tearing them away from their context and pasting them onto a model from another context. The model mirrors a commercial identity pasted onto a self whose identity already is a collage of models from his own world, his cultural and genetic heritage. The thus constructed identity is mixed in with images from a historical reality: something that happened, history as opposed to the ‘virtual reality’ of the model.
