Anonymous Masked Portraits, lockdown 2021
This series evolved from the earlier poetry paper cuttings. Throughout lockdown the mask struck me a potent symbol of this extraordinary year. I’ve always been fascinated by masks; Venetian masked balls are almost my favourite event of all to work at, yet this is a very different kind of mask. When wearing a mask we are all to some extent “hidden”. This hiding, or deleting of the face is a powerful act on many levels and changes the way we all interact. In these cuttings I wanted to bring the humanity of the person out from behind the mask.
