Photographer's Note

Three pictures today that show very special masks created for a special exhibition at The Box, the museum and art gallery in Plymouth.

"The premise of the exhibition is simple: each participating artist has created work in response to the Mayflower (400th) anniversary, utilising only tools, materials and processes that existed in 1620.

It's a concept that highlights the sophistication of historic craft practices like beadwork, joinery, metalsmithing, leatherwork and pottery."
(Notes from The Box website.)

The artist, Jeffrey Gibson - Hudson, New York.
"The masks that he created for the exhibition incorporate several materials new to his practice - porcupine quill, birch bark, river cane reed.
He has used them to make what he describes as 'cages for the head', both protective and constraining.
'They are typically omnivorous in their sources, with allusions to Native headdresses from several different nations and more.'"
(Notes at the exhibition.)

I liked this particular shot because of the shadow from above from one of the other masks.
Taken on my iPhone.
Thanks for looking.
