Alto ego – 1992
Oil on weathered wooden panel – 35 x 60cm
Masking is a common human trait. We all have the ability to veil, obfuscate and deflect our true nature and intentions. As alto ego I am suggesting an uncovering or a revealing of an unusual primal aspect of self. Masks and masking have always socially enthralled. The African Buffalo is the most unpredictable and dangerous of the ‘big five’.
