Experimentation with a ‘Clay Face’

Experimentation with a 'Clay Face'

Inspired by the works of Komei Bekki, seen here; I attempted to create a face out of the clay, much like a simplistic, expressive mask.

It’s not something i’m that happy with, but I feel like there may be something in the ‘faces’ as they craft emotion from a pile of clay. Which seems to echo the primal nature of primitive art, in which we would instill our artworks with certain emotions, often to tell simplistic stories and concepts amongst the tribes.
