About the Original:

Masks of Self
Acrylic Paint, Paint Pen, Charcoal on Panel
18" x 30"
July 2018

A procession of faces mimics our situational self that's always changing, reacting, adjusting, and expressing. The three layers represent our three parts, mind, body, and soul. Body is represented by the silhouetted city skyline, Mind is represented by the ocean waves and sunset sky, and Soul is represented by the space constellations and charcoal moon. These three things make us who we are at our core, but our idea of "self" changes more than we think or know. You change each time you are with a different person, or in a different situation, a new version of yourself is formed and adjusts to what's in front of you. Your past versions aren't invalid or gone, you are simply changing, slightly and slowly; always becoming a better version of you.

This painting was originally created for a juried group exhibition in Missoula Montana. It was accepted, but I was unhappy with the final product, so I ended up refining the faces and the city skyline to bring contrast and rhythm to the painting. It is on a Gallery quality wooden panel that's 2" thick. The image does not wrap around the edge of the panel. The sides are instead, painted with a Paynes Grey to compliment the finished piece.
