John De Andrea, painted polyester, 1984

‘Nothing reveals more about a person than his naked body’, the artist claims. John De Andrea confronts the viewer with the hyper-realistic experience of their own body. With a three-dimensional representation – made with a cast of the reality – a degree of intimacy is achieved, unmatched by any other medium.

‘Girl with the Red Drape’ is made of painted polyester and captures reality to unprecedented perfection. The realism of De Andrea’s work erases the boundary between art and life. His hyper-refined imitations of reality, faithful to the smallest detail, make the viewer shudder.
