Faces of the Shadow: Mask Sculptures
Throughout history, masks have served a myriad of functions. They have been used in everything from ritual practices to disguises, to children’s entertainment. However, beyond these uses, masks are also worn as facades. These are the masks that are worn every day – at jobs, within schools, with family & friends, and on social media. Why are these masks worn? For one, they hide any thoughts that might be deemed too radical by a politically correct culture. More importantly, though, these facades protect their wearers from being judged.
With my masks, I bring forth the nature that I normally hide. The work embodies my “Shadow Archetype” – acknowledging the sadness, anger, and distrust that I hold within for a variety of cultural topics. The masks allow me to release these emotions and see my entire self – emerging from the shadows to wholly embrace my identity.
