Piece description from the artist
Masks is an acrylic and oil on canvas painting. In this piece I layered the colors in thick lines and allowed them to dry before adding the next layer. Between layering I would add additional colors to the wet painting allowing for a mixing on the canvas. The masks are symbols for the spiritual life. They are hollow, see-through, images allowing the background to flow through them. All of life flows together and our "masks" do not hide as much as they reveal.
Daav Corbet finds that he is a spiritual being and that, in exploring the inexpressible, images and symbols provide more clarity than words. His artwork derives from the spiritual life and from the world of nature.
Many of his works are landscapes or abstractions thereof. Nature grounds his art in reality; the beauty of its myriad forms -flora and fauna, sky meeting horizon, clouds touching sun – are all his muse.
