Self-Portrait. Mask series. Oil on Canvas 48" x 60"
White plaster by ~aki-akiko portrays a subtle notion of mask in a gestural, powerful painting. A startling change from the digital anime that predominates on this gallery, we certainly wish to see much more from this deviant. (
You have a really wonderful physical presence in the way you use your paints. It's heavy, and at the same time atmospheric. It creates a really interesting dialogue with the figure and the idea of masks. Very, very cool.
