Even though it looks like a real clothing item, it is not. The artwork is an acrylic painting and charcoal on canvas, cut out in the shape of the dress (night gown) with a few stitches so it can hang on a hanger. The drawn/painted night gown measures 15"x 48", it is life size.
The artwork is part of my "Stains" series and refers to the haunting presence of absence.
Mostly the absence of people, and the influence of these voids. In this case, the image refers to the emotional/subconscious response, in a disguised imagery to these absences.
The presence of clothes and absence of people are hints towards a human presence which is faint enough to suggest an absence.
As a child I used to have a very unsettling dream which spoke of the depths of human connections : I hear a knock at the door, I am running to open it, and the opening view will haunt me for years to come: my mother’s fur coat hanging on a hanger, strangely floating in the opening of the door. Only years later I realized what the source of the paralyzing fear was in front of this view: not the presence of the coat but the absence of my mother. I recall the depth of fear, which sounded the depth of the relationship that I never again felt, until I became a mother.
