The creation of a portrait is often a collaboration between an artist and his model. We can see the point of view of the artist by examining the finished portrait. What is it like, however, to see things from the perspective and experience of the model and subject of the work? During the live interview portion of “The Subject as the Subject”, Carnegie Center Curator Daniel Pfalzgraf and Gunnar Deatherage will examine the role of the model from two unique angles. Deatherage was chosen by painter David Iacovazzi-Pau to be the subject of one of his paintings on view at the Carnegie Center in our current exhibit, "David Iacovazzi-Pau: Paintings and Works on Paper". Gunnar Deatherage is also best known for his work on the fashion reality television show "Project Runway" and understands the role that fashion models play in helping designers realize their sartorial visions.

Born 1978 in Luxembourg, David Iacovazzi-Pau began his education in fine arts from the age of 15 in Belgium. He later attended the Centre Académique des Arts in Luxembourg and immigrated to the United States in 1997, studying at Indiana University Southeast. Iacovazzi-Pau’s work focuses on the human figure and is a visual diary of the people he encounters. His series reveal different aspects of the sitters and the link between their physical appearance and personality. David writes, “My aim is to portray idiosyncrasies and evoke the mood of the subject in order for the portrait to have an accurate likeness and affect. The work reflects what I sense about a person and is a documentation of my community.” Visit www.davidiacovazzipau.com for more information and examples of David’s work.

Gunnar Deatherage’s bio on his website reads, “As a contestant on seasons 9 & 10 of Lifetime’s ‘Project Runway’, Gunnar Deatherage’s experience on the show came to life on one of the biggest stages in the fashion industry, the tents of the Lincoln Center, where he presented his Spring/Summer 2012 collection for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Gunnar also returned to ‘Project Runway’ All Stars Season 4, as well as launching two collections, an artisan and a ready-to-wear line, for the Autumn/Winter 2015 season. He is currently working as creative director of Nfocus Louisville magazine, providing both progressive fashion spreads as well as artful feature covers every month while simultaneously building his namesake brand.” To learn more about Gunnar and his current projects, visit www.gunnardeatherage.com.
