The face and the mask
This elegant, delicate and beautifully presented interpretation of mask by Julia Manheim (2001) I found in a book named Sustainable Jewellery edited by J. Manheim (A&C Black Publishers, London, 2009). Artist took pictures of her hand in various ways; these photographs then were processed, photocopied in black & white, and finally photocopied on coloured acetate. The most interesting aspect is that “mask” is reversed and shows what normally is covered. The hand “camouflages” the face making it “concealed” through being revealed. Absolutely gorgeous and very considered!
