Transcript of Kimmy Cantrell Clay Masks

Kimmy Cantrell
Inspired Masks

5th Grade
The use of masks in rituals or ceremonies is a very ancient human practice across the world. Masks can also be worn for protection, in hunting, in sports, in feasts or in wars – or simply used as ornamentation. Some ceremonial or decorative masks were not designed to be worn.
What is the purpose of a mask?
Cantrell left his job as a business man to pursue clay! Cantrell creates clay masks with tribal and Cubist influences. They have wonderful bold and graphic shapes, interesting textures and eye popping gazes.

Cubist and Tribal Influence
Cubism is a style of art that shows figures made of geometric shapes like squares, triangles and circles.
The Tribal influence is from Africa. Masks are extremely important in African Culture because they crafted carefully by craftsmen or artists and used in important ceremonies.
“I want to show the beauty within flaws,” the artist explains. “Imperfections tell stories that are far more compelling than perfection.” Kimmy’s vibrantly colored faces tell stories, too, and they’re written in the eyes and titles. “I manipulate he shape and position of eyes to express a range of emotions,” he remarked, “and the titles of my work often reflect my own life experiences.”
