Dressing Up

by: Anna Torma


I made this work in 2021 summer, in covid time.

I applied collages to the white silk surface, incorporated fine line drawings and played with

black and white forms.

I figured out, how the different figures; the funny and more serious ones, wearing their clothes

as skins. They masquerades and play hide away for fun and perhaps for survival.

The Dressing up is part of the series, what I exhibited in 2023 at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery in

Clavette/Torma: Resisting Constraints, curated by Ray Cronin as the Saidye Bronfman Award

Laureate, 2020
