Lee Ward 'Mask'

$150.00 Regular price

Aboriginal artist Lee Ward’s ‘Mask’ sees a mask constructed of varying marks – dots, dashes, crosses and lines. It is an experiment in tone, depth and pattern, recalling dot painting, graffiti and the cultural and personal masks we don everyday.

Ward has worked as an art teacher for adults with disabilities and an illustrator in post-war-torn Sri Lanka. In 2015 he completed a commission for Shepparton Art Museum – a hand-drawn mural of vintage cars at the close of their imagined lives, dinted, bumped and scratched up.

Experimental in technique and intricate, Ward’s ‘Mask’ is an intriguing find for collectors of contemporary prints.
