Masquerade
January 2018- This artwork took me a long time to create (including research, a month).
I love the idea of a mask being discovered within the ashes or the dust of an old Manor's Attic, where the colors are so vibrant and full of life, that it brings you back to a time of Venician masqued balls or Bourgeois' parties that you only read about in romance novels.

This particular mask is on the theme of "fun". Hence I refer to Harlequin (not the comics type, the Commedia del Arte instead).
I made the lyrics sheet on drawing paper, applying tea on it (for the stains), then writing everything. At the end I burnt the edges because I really like the effects it gives.
Although it is a smaller size, the colors and 3D style I made makes it an incredible piece of art. You can feel the mask by touch, which I believe is a big turn into art in the future.
I applied red Pebeo vitrail paint in the background, and gold in intricate design, at the edges of the mask.
