"Every day we wear a mask. Its up to you to break through it."

The work explores the idea of concealing and revealing emotions that are shown daily through using masks. Each mask is unique and portrays either one of the six basic emotions suggested by Paul Ekman or my own creation of feeling nothing. As a recently diagnosed Bi-Polar individual the work itself acts a means of personal exploration as there is no emotion available to express how and why I feel the way that I do other than my newly applied label.
