'Simulacra' n.pl. 1. an effigy; image; representation. 2. an unreal or vague semblance; superficial likeness. Christian iconography, whether allusive or flamboyant, is increasingly prevalent within contemporary fashion and editorial imagery. These commercialised representations, perhaps once seen as provocative and crude, are now generally accepted and perpetuated by mainstream culture. 'Simulacra' is a series of images influenced by iconic visual elements and reoccurring imagery in historical religious paintings. By employing pictorial techniques, I hope to comment on the correlation between painting and photography, and illustrate the influence of faith on fashion.
