CJ HENDRY: THE TROPHY ROOM

I want to let these photos I took yesterday speak for themselves first!

A birkin and a dad cap duh!

A self confessed brand coveteur, CJ Hendry places her meticulously­ drawn renderings of brand­ name objects on literal pedestals, where they are represented as trophies and presented to viewers as items of worship – a sign of the increasing prominence of today’s cult of consumerism.

Hendry’s process touches upon our deep, often emotional connections to consumer items in a whimsical way ­ artifacts from our past, objects we exhibit great attachment to, possessions we covet for social status, among others. This consumer cult mentality is personal to Hendry, and drawing these objects is a way for her to process and mask her own vices. This inspection of icons in relation to Hendry represents her lifelong obsession with luxury and otherwise highly­covetable items.
