I was travelling through North America over 6 months and during that time I was blown away by the patterns and art style of the native tribes there. Seeing the art of the first people was really inspiring. The line weights and content of the spirit world was a truly eye opening experience for me. So when I returned to Australia I set out to create a mask that honoured those styles and add in my own psychedelic flair.
The result was an animal mask that had a sort of meditative experience built in.
During creating it when I stepped back and stared at the details my mind got caught in it like a trap. Staring at the centre the intricate details sort of absorbed my focus.
It's now on display at the Work-Shop Makery in Sydney.
