Louisiana-based Dawn Black examines the masquerades people employ to conceal their identities. Meticulously drawn in gouache, watercolor, and ink on paper, the figures in her Conceal Project span time periods and costumes in more than 200 postcard-size portraits of real individuals in masks, uniforms, haute couture and ceremonial dress. She is on view at the Columbus Museum’s Yarbrough Gallery through February 2013.

fascinating arts i love love love this work so brilliant and i just had to reblog and share otherwise it would kill me.
great art work, since the old is on the market making money, the nouveau is living dangerously… nice touch!
