The two masks in this painting represent our submerged emotions, it has an underwater quality. So often we assume different masks and hide parts of our personality. Emotions are what determine our conscious and unconscious behaviours, they bring things to awareness that are otherwise hidden from the world. It’s important to release our emotions and you can do that by feeling them strongly and then letting them go, instead of numbing them with food or TV. The shaman in this painting represents an animalistic creative, earthy energy.
