Enrico David’s stylised figures draw upon the carnival-esque, their elaborate costumed appearance both celebrates and closets their identity. Set a la Bond girl against a sumptuous candyfloss pink ground, Cora presents a naughty intrigue associated with a more romantic and innocent time. Through both his subject and media, David confronts the boundaries of gender expectation: rendered through the traditional women’s art of needlework, Cora’s body is suspiciously asexual, ‘her’ butterfly head spanning in demure reference to female genitalia.
