Secrets & Lies - mixed media

Here are a couple more items in the Poisoned Apples show, which opens this Saturday at The FunHouse Gallery in Detroit, MI.

I made these masks out of Papier-mâché, thread-inclusive papers, ribbons, paints & Polaroid Emulsion transfers.

They are life size & can be worn. 

Each also holds a secret inside. 

Somewhat fragile, they are mainly decorative. These could be displayed on the wall, or even in front of a mirror.... if you want to give the world a glimpse of what is going on inside.

Have you seen my other pieces in this show? If not, click here for yesterday's post which has the mixed media pieces mirror, mirror and (de)scepter . Tomorrow I will share the last one, so please pop back & check it out.
