The Mask…amidst nature

The Mask… Art at Scheveningen!!

I saw this sculpture when I was in Scheveningen (Holland) some years ago. It had a powerful effect on me. There was something apocalyptic about it even then. I found many layers in my psyche it resonated with.
The mask amidst field of wild blown grass: the mask we wear in the midst our raw nature; the breaking down and dissolving of constructs of the ego amidst the elements..

The breaking down of a civilization...a broken concrete mask..just fallen out of the sky..

dark thoughts

Ok, so I'm smiling here. This photo is a school photo taken in 1961, in Curacao. I was 10.
Over the last few days my mind has been so negative and self defeating. Everything just feels a bit too hard, the chaos of my studio, the dreams of a better life...
Feels like I need to shrink away the screaming thoughts and let in the light again..
