About "African Masks"

I was visiting a small town in the Loweveld (South Africa) named Graskop and there is this in credible shop where a man exhibits his collection of traditional African Masks that he has collected over the years. I have always been intrigued by the cultural and traditional meaning for these masks and the craftsmanship. They have so much character and embrace this mystery of being human and what makes us. Also as a little girl my grandparents would have these large African Masks hanging in the staircase towards the bedrooms, every time I walked past them they would make me wonder and they have never left my mind. There is most definitely something personal we all can experience in masks, like the different faces we can put on.

About Anna-Kirsten

Anna-Kirsten

My fascination and affinity goes out to the natural world. I marvel about existence and the mysterious role that every living and non-living thing plays in our universe. Experiencing the delicate interconnectedness of existence and its biodiversity on earth has led me to wonder more into the metaphysical realms. Exploring the transient nature of being and the nature of 'nature': considering life and death as part of a cycle, as well as an eternal coming and going.

I am a multi-disciplinary artist, I internalise and capture the essence of a place, creature or the forever changing landscape. I use different mediums to create my artworks like painting, drawing, film, photography, sculpture and installation.

With my art I hope to ripple a positive impulse and awaken a compassionate attitude in people towards the natural world.
