YOU ARE WEARING THEIR MASKS by mistertrece YOU ARE WEARING THEIR MASKS by mistertrece
Aerosol spray and kleenex on canvas, 1 apple juice. OST: ARKANGEL " How We See The World" [link]
"Damned Forever" [link]

I wanted to show two roles of our existence: the rotten mask is a metaphor of the people who needs to be part of the mass for to feel safe and alineated, and the rotten spots are the slowly lost of the individual existence when that people do it. I think is the easy way. The other face is a metaphor of the people who fight and learn every day for to be themselves and live by their own values and try to think by themselves. The marks are the scars of the eternal fight between the mass and the individual.

I think that we live right now in an era with that two extreme opposite ways of life are bigger than ever. The strong media overdose and the technology are a big influence in our life today, and sometimes is hard to know if you need all that bullshit and believe all that you see, read and listen. Society, moral and culture defines the idea of what´s beautiful, good, evil, what you need and what you don´t need, the way you eat, what´s cool and the definition of succes and happines. In or out, conscious or unconscious we all live in some dregrees of that system. So i wanted to show the two heads as the society and the two heads as a part of it.

I think we don´t have a real quality of life, physical and spiritual ( just think why we need that millions of pills) We just have more distractions than ever.

I like the 3-D effect of the texture, and i like that you can step out on your soapbox with interesting statements on society.

Yeah it was a direct "express yourself" moment :D but i show my opinion about things in the 60% of my stuff, more a metaphor, is not easy to see it but that´s why i add that texts.
Thank you so much for your comments!!

These expressions, they're haunting. You've really captured a sense of disconnect with reality and the masks we wear as a society. Wonderful.

Thank you so much! Is a personal point of view, after to watch the last days how we´re addicted of technology and all that media overdose, and sometimes we forget our identity as individuals.

Its so true. I feel like I can't be without my cellphone or my computer. In fact without my cellphone I suffer severe anxiety. What happened to the days when I could roam the world free of my electronics just enjoying the world around me?

And yet I rejoice in the world of the internet because it allows me to show my true self, the self that I am scared to show in reality.

Yeah, i can feel you. I use internet for my personal profit, but sometimes i feel it steals me precious time, so i deleted my facebook account and started to read more books and live the "real" life.
Anxiety, stress, isolation... i think all of that are the new sickness of our era.

I deleted my facebook account once but it took me from so many of the friends I had made as everyone seems to be addicted to the internet.

I've taken to forcing myself to use it for writing, or for art purposes so that I at least feel productive when it takes my time from me.

One day for a week I'm going to go somewhere without phones or computers just to relax and return to the person I once was, no matter how dark that person might be.

Anxiety is indeed. I do not know anyone who has not felt its cold grip. Its just different degrees of anxiety.

I think all of that just make a pressure to all o us, because now to be part of the mass is so important, and i think we´re losing our own opinions and personality. The scary thing is... if that happens today, how it could be in ten years?

Those who have strong opinions however can find like minded people in a way they could not have before. Its not always the best thing, hatred and violence can be spread that way. Its a lifeline, a killer, a meeting place, and a dark alley all at once.

Maybe 10 years from now we'll all be influenced by a select few through the very technology we had become obsessed with.

Agree again, i think some people forced us to have all that technology, now ir you dont have internet or cell phone you choose to be isolate from the rest.
Videogames, tv, the social networks are a big mass control weapon, because you´ve 24/7/365 distractions and is a easy way to don´t face the fuck up reality we live, like that economic crash or simple, your way of think.

an intelligent comment
for what it's worth
squawking out my mouth
(i look up awkwardly, someone enters my room
we speak briefly, he closes the door)
squash my head
i am lying
i am a fool
i should not have come back
i knew i should have not come back
in this world
the last great american eagle flies over my head
i log out
i change track
