Jessica Honey creates uncanny portrait galleries of celebrities and icons of popular culture. In a similar vein to how Warhol sought to connect himself with celebrities, Honey hijacks the faces of the famous and famesque imbuing them with her own facial features. Whether to pay homage, exploit, self-aggrandize or as a cheaper alternative to plastic surgery, Honey’s portraits explore the construction and expansion of the Celebrity in both Hollywood and the artworld.
