SAIC (School of the Art Institute of Chicago), 2013, BFA


Ellis von Sternberg’s work amplifies imagery of cartoon icons, religious fetish items and mass-produced commodification. The motifs he utilizes are intended to produce their own cult following; they are objects that demand an introverted and avid commitment. Operating as elseworld objects created for uncanny ideologies. They are ornate and sexual – synthetic idols standing at the intersection of fanboyism, zealotry and the future.
