Part of the South FIRST FRIDAYS Art Walk SJ.“This is my mask”What do you see?Whatever I wantBut it is not me.I am a woman,A daughter, a wifeI was a girl once,But now I’ve lived life.We all wear masks, for different audiences.Our romantic mask, our caring mask, our feminine mask, our warrior mask, our sad mask, our joyful mask. Masks have always fascinated me, the ability to hide one’s true feelings under a façade – instant bravery in a scary world. Put on clown make-up, and it’s no longer you with your anxieties, you are transformed and freed! I build my masks in the classic water color style, building up luminous layers over layers and using the unpainted paper as negative space.

Part of the South FIRST FRIDAYS Art Walk SJ. Dean Levita’s installation “Phases” is a non-narrative film that is experimental in form.
