Iris Compiet - masks

- Self, graphite pencil 2014 -

The masks that frighten me the most are the ones I wear myself. It is about hiding ones true feelings, in order to protect oneself. But do these masks really protect or do they harm us more than our showing our true feelings? Does a mask of strength really work when you feel lost and defeated or is it just a way to kid yourself and hide those things in the darkness of ones soul?


  1. Really great melding of features and texture here.

  2. I'm going to say it again. I love this piece!

    1. Thank you Travis! means a lot to me coming from you, you know I freakin' love your art
