Diane Victor / One Pound of Flesh / In the Viewing Room

About

In her solo exhibition of large and small scale drawings, as well as drawings in mixed media on board and glass, Diane Victor examines the idea that the rewards of life inevitably exact a debt of payment that is harshly insisted upon. Taking a cue from Shakespeare, and from her experience of life-giving surgery, Victor presents a series of drawings that traverse the line between the private and the public, between gratification and expectation; and between the body and the body politic.
