Holywood: Ex Voto Pop
The economic and media driven cult of celebrity carries with it quasi-religious and spiritual overtones. Indeed, it has been argued that celebrity worship has practically replaced religious worship in some societies. This thesis is loosely based on folk votive paintings with the previous statement in mind. Celebrities have been paired with certain patron saints and their causes. A caricatured visage has been given to them to encourage an ironic and or satirical reading.
