man with layer

wood (12x9x42 in.), 2014

This is the second work in this series. The outer layer here is apparel, the mask or persona shadowing the inner person. I am trying to show that anyone can easily put or remove this kind of an appearance. But human purity or truth resides in the inner being of self. The hollow takes the viewer closer to that inner being, intuition rather than intellect.
