These masks were inspired by the early plaster-cast life masks in the 17 and 1800’s. When I first saw examples of them I mourned for the people of whom had been captured so perfectly, handsome faces that were long gone. For me the sculptures, plaster busts created by the masks, were almost inter dimensional and that if I touched them they could possible take me back in time.
I have used life masks in the hope of creating an impression or snapshot of our world now. Our world, our culture, one that is overlooked and unappreciated even at our own expense. I wish to draw attention to it now while it is still salvageable.
