Surreal Mask Painting 

#1 of a 4 set
30" x 24"
Oil on Panel

This Surreal Mask Painting, "Rage," an original oil on panel, is the first in a four-set of "Geo Political Surreal Paintings" of Mask Images.

I found subject matter as a result of the Los Angeles riots which were in full swing on television where they showed a Black man at the riots holding his hands up in front of his face in a state of rage wanting the madness to stop.

So for this image I painted the mask of an enraged Black man. I added handprints. I also included Australian aboriginal petroglyphs of the oldest known written music to suggest spinal form.
