Mask 01...

Mask 02

two masks


I started creating these masks when I began the bas reliefs in the Room of the Muses. I had seen and admired masks in Bali and Java, and of course in Mexico. I used these masks to experiment with technique and form. Working with the papier mache (see my note in the Room of the Muses) required a new set of skills. These masks, smaller and quicker to make than the bas reliefs, gave me a chance to learn these skills, and also explore ideas of identity and archetypes. They now adorn my walls, next to the Muses themselves....
