No. 1 West Mask
The sculpture is a wearable mask. The tiny holes act as a coarse screen through the wearer of the mask can see in order to navigate his/her surroundings. The sculpture, which ressembles a brimmed, round-topped, hat, is supported on a slender, metal rod which is attached to a square, rotating base. There are four, fan-like blades extending out from the edge of the hat brim. The blades are placed around the brim, equidistant from each other. Underneath each blade and under the hat brim, the artist has attached cut binder twine, the ends of which protrude through slightly. Two of the blades have blacktop highways drawn on them; the other two blades have two trails on them. On the top and upper sides of the hat, are clouds. On the sides of the hat, just above the brim, are trees and a prairie elevator. The artist has punched tiny holes around the elevator. The Fiberglas on top of the brim has been maniuplated to emulate the contours of the ground. Suspended from underneath the top hat, is a Fiberglas “face” on which the artist has drawn a snow fence which resembles a mouth. This is a prairie scene in the dead of winter.
