Last Grasp

I decided to begin a blog as an experiment. I've had a website for quite a while, but it's something that is a bit out of my control (I don't know how to update it myself). As a result, I'm hopelessly behind. So, I thought I would start this blog and introduce some of the new work I've done over the past two years. It will also be a more gradual process and I hope to provide a bit more insight on my work. Even though all of the pieces have titles, I still get a few questions about why I have created a particular mask and what does it mean??!!

The mask pictured here is entitled "Last Grasp". It is part of a series that I began early in 2008. If the series had a title, it would be something like "The Leaf as Metaphor". I like the idea of using leaves to express ideas - perhaps because of their transitory nature. This particular piece has only had time to grab a few branches to accompany him on his journey. Well, it will be a lot quicker getting through security!

So begins the experiment...we'll see how long I can keep it up!
