Sophie DeFrancesca
China Gown



Part of Defrancesca's exquisite life-size high fashion gown series. The lacy shadow cast by the piece becomes a part of the installation. The rich royal blue is luminescent. Sophie Defrancesca was born in Toronto in 1967, and attended the Ontario College of Art, graduating in 1990. Influenced by iconic dresses of the twentieth century, Defrancesca creates delicate figurative pieces out of galvanized steel and latex. The metallic paint adds a lively sparkle in the light. Defrancesca's work has been exhibited extensively in the United States - Miami, New York, Naples, Los Angeles and Palm Springs. Her work has also been featured in a number of exhibitions in Europe and Canada.
