Alter ego II

???????????????????????????????

I brought two of the recent threads together by creating forms from the hand made paper sheets, draped over masks. I like the way the pulp slumps and collapses before drying into a parchment like material. It seems most appropriate for the subject matter of alter ego – there’s a kind of fragility to the skin like texture suggesting at the fragile nature of personality/ identity and the changes that people deal with in their lives. I’ve produced half a dozen and the slightly different thicknesses of the pulp sheet and the way that they are draped means that each one behaves quite differently. Could these be a range of alter ego’s in various states of strength?
