Faces in Theatrics

​Plaster Sculpture 

 

The faces portray exaggerated features to reflect my involvement in theater by partially resembling masks from the Commedia dell’arte movement in Northern Italy. 

 

The first sculpture is a free canvas for wigs and makeup, much like how I see my own face as a canvas when I dress in character for a performance.

 

The second face is more anxious than the first. His face is being pulled in many different directions; a physical portrayal of stress in emotional connections.
