After Paris, I headed to the Veneto region in Italy to paint at EnergyFest, organised by Kantiere Misto, in the small town of San Polo Di Piave. I created a piece inspired by the mask and costume traditions of the nearby Venice, where a girl is seen hiding her face with her hands while her mask is off. We all hide behind a mask and an image, when our true self is exposed how do we react? Do we let go?
