Tyler Faulstich and Julie Monro-Allison explore the cultural, historical, sociological, aesthetic and transformative qualities of masks.
Masks are ubiquitous. The form of the mask has arisen independently across cultures at many points throughout history. There is a series of basic shared elements that make a mask; a face covering with eyes, nose and a mouth, but what does a mask refer to beyond these elements?
Working with an array of different materials, these two artists explore what contemporary masks signify in our culture today.
