This mask is almost fresh from the fire - it had its public debut at the showing last weekend. I had been wanting to make some "hopeful" pieces to express some of the high hopes that are gradually spreading throughout the land. It seems like a good idea to focus on the posititive and to welcome change with open arms!
Of course, the next step for me is to explore the idea a bit further - perhaps adding a touch of irony .... I'm already planning a similar piece with arms hinged at the elbows.
