ABOVE :Sorrowful blue mask on Conrad's face
AT RIGHT : Someone greedy beside the Holy Mother.
Conrad's masks are sublime, like hot shrieks and
strange deep deep sea dwellers. They look as if one
might meet them whilst out wearing a snorkel... One
knows these masks as hidden aspects of the self -
the parts one experiences under the covers. - Miro
Earthenware clay masks by Conrad, fired at about 1050 - 1100F. Ball clay & oxides applied as paint while clay is leather-hard, before firing. The coral-like surface of some of the masks is made meticulously & meditatively by the artist using a sharp, needle-like tool, one hole at a time - a million deaths, a million lives. Masks of coral.
