“ICON PAINTINGS” IS A STUDY ON THE ACT OF DEVOTION. THE SERIES OF HANDMADE PAINTINGS DRAWS A PARALLEL BETWEEN THE RELIGIOUS TRADITION OF RENDERING SACRED PERSONALITIES WITH THE MODERN-DAY FAN ART AND SCRAPBOOKING TECHNIQUE. WITHIN EACH UNCANNY HYBRID IS A LOOK INSIDE THE PSYCHE OF THE DEVOTEE , THE ROLE OF MEDIA (SPECIFICALLY MAGAZINE/TABLOID) AND ITS CORRELATION TO OUR MORTALITY.
