With the Open Face

Story About This Painting

Painting on Silk

Size: 80 x 70 cm

To my opinion, people are wearing masks all the time all their lives and only, very rarely, on some special occasions or under certain special circumstances, they take their masks off and we may see a real face… 

On this painting we see a young lady surrounded by different carnival characters… she takes her mask off and just for this short moment we may see her real face… but soon she will put her mask back on and we will lose her in the whirlpool of the party… Golden and red color palette is aimed to intensify the impression of carnival activities.

This artwork is made with use of complicated author’s technique of batik and painting. This artwork is painted on the natural silk cloth with professional German silk paints, batik textile dyes, waxes, etc. (KREUL Javana). The paint is water based, has no smell, and is fade and wash resistant (after fixing).

Signed on the front.
