Peter Hoffer
Runway Model (Prada)
2016

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

The artist forces a contemporary consideration of the fashion industry and its memes, particularly the Paris runway.

Like the other paintings in this series, the Prada model is raised on a dais or altar.

Here, a refined and realistic rendering of a high-fashion model, on top of which transparent, geometric layers of spray paint, and graffiti-like drips have been applied. The abstraction in the lower panel is in sharp contrast to the high realism of the model herself. The painting is on canvas that has been applied to panel and then coated in resin.

Hoffer draws attention to the process of creating art - the construction is skillful but exposed.

Hoffer maintains an active studio practice in Berlin and in Montreal.
