It is always amazing to find out where certain artworks travel. These South American Masks Series I & II found their way to New York and are in the Crosby Street Hotel in New York. A long way from my hometown in Sheffield where they were made and life here in Australia. An interesting tale as these works became known to me via Warner Bros. who needed a licence to use them in a film shoot interview with Sarah Jessica Parker in Sex in the City 2. Apparently they were bought in an auction for the hotel but I am not sure how they ended up over in the US. The hotel is filled with artworks.
The works were actually created in 1986 and interestingly featured as an album cover for the Hornweb Saxaphone Quartet - Kinesis. I made the calligraphic prints following a trip to Venezuela having been inspired by its culture.
It makes me wonder what journeys other works have had over time and to know that they are still being enjoyed.
