The Nigerian mask of celebration and joy is a mask that lends itself to many interpretations that I enjoy exploring. I have done a series using this same mask in different approaches using my signature style of Plastic Space. The identifying parts of this type of mask are the bulging eye-lids with the cross hatch pattern and the laughing extended tongue. I enjoy using this mask to lighten the artwork and capture the lighthearted feeling it departs.
