I make head sculptures from cut up vinyl Halloween masks stuffed with plastic bags and pinned together on styrofoam heads. I think about the head and all its meanings– the magical, powerful holder of the spirit and soul, the abstracted head in African sculpture and the altered rejuvenated, sometimes disfigured face in plastic surgery.
