New Work-Chiaroscuro and Texture

Existence Behind a Mask

I love how the metal distortion, the light and shadows combine to create this image.  It looks as if Z has removed her mask only to reveal, nothing?  That’s the danger of masks.  They hide and protect us.  They feel like armor.  But worn too long and the self atrophies, like a limb held in a cast.  The thing that was supposed to support becomes a tool of waste.  Sometimes it’s good to pull the mask off, to let in light and fresh air.  Even if it risks being exposed.

Inevitability of Change

Art nude photograph from the metal mirror series by Lucas James

It had been a long day, one neither of them wanted to end. Light had faded to night hours ago and dawn threatened to come all to soon and with the dawn, she had to leave.  They had savored every moment, trying to hold something of each other- some sight, some smell, some taste-that would last beyond their parting.  In the darkness they promised each other they would stay in touch, but both knew things would never be the same.  They would never be the same person who laid there that evening.  Not even when the dawn came.
