A selection of conceptual portraits by Vancouver-based artist Cara Guri. Interested in identity construction and the “transactional nature of portraiture,” Guri’s work plays with the amount of information that is both provided to and withheld from the viewer:
“Through my paintings, I re-examine conventions and symbols that are found in historical portraiture by translating them into my current reality in a way that disrupts their original meaning.”
