Sculpture: Painted Faces, Blind Masks
For my Sculpture class we had to complete a project involving casting at least three duplicates of an object by creating a plaster mold of it and casting the duplicates in densite. I chose a mask, which I had to fill in with clay because of how thin it was otherwise.
Once I'd done all that, I had six near-identical masks, so I decided I wanted to paint them to see if I could make them each look very different from each other, so you couldn't tell they were the same face. After that I chose to blindfold all the masks for cohesion, and because I wanted to play with the concept of sight and the phrase "beauty is in the eye of the beholder".
