For the second term of second year I am in the module ‘Magical Objects’. During this module we will be exploring masks, and magical reliquaries, from around the world. Todays session we drew James’ collection of masks from observation. These are a series of my observational drawings and ideas that we influenced from them.
After seeing the facial features that were full of emotion in some of the masks I want to explore this notion further and and investigate the idea of daily ‘masks’ that we wear day-to-day e.g hiding our emotions as far as mental health matters are concerned.
I want to explore the concept of clowns and how I perceive clowns to be scary and how some people also perceive mental health to be scary and how they will wear a mask just like clowns in order to cover up their true feelings.
