Gold textured mask with a black background

My latest work is a mask inspired by my ancestral Yoruba tribe from West Africa. I wanted to represent the model of an elongated and oval shaped face, as this is commonly seen on traditional masks from the region.

I used blending and pouring techniques to combine the dark and light areas. The above shot was taken as the first layer of the piece dried. You can see the reflection of my light in the surface of the poured blue acrylic. The endless abyss of blue holds a dark depth at its heart, and you can almost see the ghost-like human face… Read more Dark Navy Blue, Silver and Gold Metallic Abstract Acrylic on Canvas Outer Space Mood Art
