Surface Tension Mask

This is my second mask. I completed it recently. It has a design on the face that represents the reflection of light on water when viewing it from below. I call this mask “Surface Tension”, which is a play on words because of the water and the ovoids. Ovoids are supposed to be drawn as if the lines in the ovoid are under tension–sort of how a stick looks when it bends–hence the play on words. Ovoids are also a basic form within northwest coast art, similar to how water is a basic factor for physical life.

I will be displaying this mask, along side other works, at the year end exhibit this weekend.
