In the show Bare, the artist investigates how we relate to size, material, and art (history). Tamara Dees transforms the transmission of paintings completely. Sometimes she removes the subject, in other artworks the subjects of the paintings are completely covered with leaf gold. All that remains of the original painting is a trace, and though this trace is borrowed from the painting, it has become another nature entirely: it is that trace stripped of its iconicity. The transmission is always done with great care. She conserves her found treasures with care, by letting it disappear under the valuable leaves.
