The enduring popularity of idols speaks to a human urge to redirect grief, confusion or isolation into an object of fixation. Idolum explores the visual traces of this impulse in the artist's home, Donegal, Ireland; exploring overlapping religious ideologies and popular racing subcultures.

“ICXC” is an artefact of Christian branding—a combination of letters that form an abbreviation of the Greek name for Jesus Christ. In iconography, the fingers of Christ are often posed to spell out this abbreviation.
