Video really did kill the radio star and ultimately has lead music to a homogenous path of sameness. When I think of modern music so much of it is driven by looks. In this painting the sitter, Star, was a lead singer of a band. Her beauty is unquestionable and unduly put her in a position to succeed in the music industry. It’s interesting that the industry is making assessments of success based on visual aesthetic and the sound comes second.

Inspired by: "Silence" by Portishead
