Drago Persic’s paintings demonstrate a remarkable finesse in this regard, and refer to the ambivalences that present themselves when the subject becomes the draping of the body itself.

About the product

“The relationship between the body and cloth, the figure and fabric, man and clothing is multifaceted. Throughout art history, these relationships have often served as criteria of style and indicators of chronology, rendering it possible to classify works of art by period and geography. The significance borne by the distance and/or proximity between a body and the overlying cloth has a great deal to do with the assignment of an image to a cultural sphere, an epoch, or to the study of humanities and socio-political issues.

Drago Persic’s paintings demonstrate a remarkable finesse in this regard, and refer to the ambivalences that present themselves when the subject becomes the draping of the body itself. Although draped human bodies are not the primary subject of Persic’s paintings, the artist plays with fabric as a compositional theme as well as with the relationship between what is visibile, analogous, and/or readable when applied to the human body, even though – or perhaps precisely because – the human body is largely absent from his work." (Synne Genzmer)
