Through an incredibly time consuming process of hand stitching, Enrico David renders intimate sentiment as an anonymous aesthetic icon. Centring his subject on a luxuriously dyed canvas, David adapts the type of classic composition associated with the art deco designer Erté. Fabricated from sumptuous silk thread and yarn, David crafts a refined elegance that’s both austere and tactile. Approaching fashion as folly, David’s swarthy figure is mysteriously chic, a blackened silhouette rejoicing in its ‘invisible’ intrigue. Hinting at a sexual awakening, or blossoming innocence, the ornate head makes reference to Georgia O’Keefe’s flower paintings.
