Papier Mache Mask made from found papers. Non-wearable mask based on a newspaper article about a man who fell to his death chasing his escaped cockatoo.
With found papers and, often, debris found on the streets of Manhattan, I like to create animal masks. These works tend to be inspired by feature stories in the news. Typically, these are stories in which the tables are turned so that the hunter winds up as the prey. For example, in the mask I am submitting, a cockatoo has fled from captivity. The man who kept the bird fell to his death chasing it. A grim tale for the man, but, hopefully, a happy ending for the liberated cockatoo!
