Well, we all play a role as actor in the game of life, right? I can see much emtiness around the masked identity...
One more interesting artwork, Dirk.

And our so-called identity is a mask too..
In fact we can't live without masks, even for ourselves we wear one...

one more time, I'm trying to clear up the mysrery of your painting.... What's hidden behind this mask, this ice-cold look?
 It looks like the detail of a larger work?

Of course, not everything is (rationally) explainable... Anyway, I like to make mysterious images...
Do you like it somehow?

To wear a mask is to keep your secret identity.
Reply
:iconrollarius55:
rollarius55 Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I see it on another level: every so-called identity is a kind of mask too...; there are many layers in one's identity..
do you know what I mean...
