Fascinating Wrestling Masks

Things that fascinate me and that I want to turn into a photography project of some nature-Mexican wrestling masks.

Mexican wrestling is characterized by these colorful masks.

I have no idea what the project would be at this point, but I enjoy walking around Old Town looking at the various booths stock piled with these masks for as little as $10 each. I think they remind me of the Quilted Men Paintings I did and the Abduction Painting, so there are some similarities.

Also they are very similar to the masks I made for the performance piece “The Quilted Men” which was constructed loosely around the piece I had originally written as an Epilogue to The Notebook.

Maybe some sort of performance thing….
