mask is worn to hide
true feelings guarded closely
who is the real me?
The beautiful mask on the left was created by artist, Carrie Bourdeau. Aptly named “Bullet”, the mask is covered in bullet casings and was just one of 30 masks she created for her “Rusty Gimp” art show several months ago. Her gentle and kind spirit is an unexpected but lovely juxtaposition against her often dark subject matter.
The amazing, multifaceted mask on the right was created by a talented art collaborative known as 3 Baaad Sheep. The title of the piece is “You, Me, Us, We” and this photo doesn’t even begin to capture the layers of detail the artists assembled on this piece. My talented friends, Alexander P. Huerta, Eddie Canumay & Alexander “Sky” Carranza, individual artists in their own right, make up the 3 Baaad Sheep collaborative. I’m a proud collector of many of their works.
