Rubberneck is pleased to present “Do You Love Me Now?”
a solo exhibition of original work by Claire Burke Dain.
Dain calls into question, through her unique body of work, the ways in which people establish their identity. She looks in particular at the way people decorate themselves and ‘perform’ for others. The intention behind her collection of drawings and paintings is to illustrate the invisible and intuitive self. As well as expose the identity and personality of the objects we wear. Her pieces argue, by honoring imagination anyone can transform the mundane into something magical.
