  • Masks

  • The creation of this series of illustrations was sparked by Native American masks and designs. I find their depictions of animals really interesting and how in some instances certain tribes believe in absorbing the “power” and spirit of the animal. Therefore, I set out to explore this idea of the mask and what it implies as both a physical and spiritual object. People wear masks. Are the people we meet really showing who they are? Are we ourselves wearing a mask? To develop this concept I decided to depict the model’s actual face as a mask. So the mask becomes an absent yet perceivable object. An object that is beautiful and deceitful.
