Evolution of the mask: “The Task”

I think my project is nearing its end. I don’t know if I accomplished what I wanted but I learned a thing or two. I might still make one–if enough motivation is left. This last piece is the answer that I found to my question: what is under the mask? I don’t know if it’s possible to express it with a half head, it shuld probably be done as a bust. But perhaps more important is the inner entity what I found in myself rather than the tangible proof of it…

    Heck, Erika, I could have told you there was no monster under that mask and I’m sorry you had to break it apart. Actually, I feel a little disappointed: I wondered if I’d see some dramatic inner entity and here I got this unsurprising, good-natured, normal girl. Maybe she has dracula canines.

    Sorry to disappoint you, but this is how far I went in my dig. She actually is the inner child, so important for us creative people. It’s all I want to conserve while I am making stuff: childish curiosity and maximum focus and absorbtion. Plenty of surprises in the upper layers, perhaps even scary vampire canines among others.

    Sorry for being such a smart-alec. It was a nice idea and a complex piece and not your fault that I expected a more conventional Jekyll and Hyde show. Protect that child.

    No need to feel sorry, Swallows, there’s nothing wrong with a little humour and amusement here and there, lightens up the no-art part of our lives. OOoh, I like that alliteration! 🙂
