Abstraction is a mask for reality?
Reality is abstract-













One ?possible? reality for this is really sick: I've seen people on the street blow their nose by closing one nostril with a finger, and blowing- whooosssh- splat on the sidewalk goes their mucus. So this is my impression of someone whose face ran into something, and is using the above mentioned maskless method of blowing his nose (maybe a connection to my invention post?). Also, I used liquid mask/frisket in the piece to mask "mask". Also- paint itself is a mask. Yeah that's it.

















P.M.
Mask your mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing- use a tissue or your shoulder-- not your hands they say... and, of course- use a tissue when blowing thine nose. Stay well everybody.

Very colorful mucoid discharge! No really...I like what you've done and what you had to say. Excuse me while I get a kleenex.

Who is that masked man under the mess of nose mask in the bottom piece, another mask or part of the first mask mess? You don't have to answer that, I've confused myself.
I like the query, abstraction is a mask for reality. Reality is abstract, that would mean everything is abstract, maybe a reality mask is needed, maybe I should stop.
I love your work, it's awesome, fascinating and never boring!

Cool! I must say, it's much nicer than the guy jogging by snorting out of his big nose! I like how you 'masked' the word mask in all those colors!
