Theatrical Masks

I was inspired to create these masks after looking at some masquerade masks in a shop in Durham. The masks were sparkly and decorative adorned with feathers and glitter and I thought it would be interesting to do an anti-glitter masquerade mask adorned with 'ugly' imagery that would be visually very interesting and allow the opportunity for further photoshoots and story telling in the future.
I sculpted the mask from mod roc using my own face as the model and applied my hand drawn bugs in a strategic way that would make the best use of the masks by having the insects crawling in and out of the eyes etc.
The end result is very theatrical and evocative adding lots of material for further storytelling...
