visionary theater masks displayed backstage

THE ANGEL OF BEING, painting detail by Steven E. Counsell

Let’s wear FUN masks again…..remember when … ??

 “…Amid the amazements
of play, I attend , in my mind, Carnival
and Mardi Gras, live the Circus, concealed
in powders and paint for pinking my ashen cheek.
I learned to wear ceremonial masks…”

Poetic excerpt from Art Book, ILLUMINATIONS The Geography of the Imagination, by Steven E. Counsell
