Diane Dal-Pra @ Cob Gallery
16 July 2020 - 5 September 2020
‘Of Course You Are’ the title of Diane Dal-Pra’s exhibition, is the response to a preceding question, the demand for approval and the response an affirmation to the subject delivered despite the masking of each large scale portrait.
Dal-Pra’s principal concern is that of identity, the choices we make in the presentation of our bodies to others and to the outside world. It is not by what we see so much, as by what is hidden, for Dal-Pra chooses to disguise these portraits completely in fabrics and the every day objects that we choose to represent ourselves. These bodies are consumed by an overabundance of textiles which underline the duality of the objects which surround each figure.
