Masks

Since my childhood and surely inspired by the time I lived in Kenya- I have been fascinated by masks. Like many artists. I truly understand, why the African mask has inspired art movement so fundamentally. It seems that the mask allows us a define a expression, a certain feeling or mood. The face is reduced and enriched by its main components. Eyebrows, eyes, nose, mouth. This simplicity is very engrossing. Looking at masks is like looking at the variety of our expressions and giving Space to them without judgement.
