I stumbled across a book of African masks and I was fascinated by the variety of the designs and the meanings behind them. So, I decided to do a series of paintings based on the pictures in the book.

 

I used oil paint for these because I was interested in the quality, depth and richness of the paint which I felt acrylic couldn't give me.

 

Like other series' I have embarked upon, this one was aborted well before it got finished - midway through the African moon mask.
