Galleria Francesca Kaufmann hosts a true and original homage to the art of portraiture. The exhibition focuses on works that portrays the subject beyond its physical appearance. Artists such as Pae White, Dave Muller and Allan Kaprow have based their representations on the uniqueness of the model. White gives the viewer the chance to choose the hue of his chandeliers and, in this sense, the work reveals itself as a portrait of the viewer’s.
Dave Muller leaves his model the task of compiling a top ten of his favourite L.P.s and includes the spines of the records in the painting. Kaprow shows Scores, where the person is almost reduced to a machine, performing a set of actions.
Tom Burr and Lorna Macyntire portray cultural characters from the past that the author hasn't met directly. Both Burr and Macyntire avoid traditional commemorative styles of portraiture and instead features details that are only part of the subjects whole. (carlo prada)
