This series of etchings are images of human bones resembling faces.
It started with bones in my studio seemingly looking at me - a known psychological phenomenon ‘Pareidolia’, seeing faces in inanimate objects. My response was to look back and make these ‘faces’ visible via drawing, photography and etching. I became interested in the role of masks which whether sacred, practical, or playful have throughout history helped understand what it means to be human, because they allow one to imagine what it is like to be transformed into a different identity.
When you step into the circle you are both looking and being looked at.
