This is a poetic journey through the inspiration behind the mask Dyan. I used PowerPoint,a sketching program,many hours in Photoshop and behind my camera. The most rewarding part of this process,besides the making of this mask were the sessions I spent with Dyan.Getting to know her,little by little over time is the great reward. The mask itself,therefore,is the embodiment of relationships. It is personal,intimate and one of a kind.

DDG DESIGN STUDIO...Attraction to natural material and texture is apparent in Ms. Grey’s furniture designs as well as interiors. Rare woods are chosen specifically for their grain, depth and color and partnered with contrasting material. Her designs are distinct and credited with elegant and subtle versatility. A dining table of exotic wood and high-gloss white can be configured several ways while retaining the perfect composition of line and contrast. Blackened steel bed tables extend upward as partnered with the dark wood floating platform bed. Smooth mitered glass seems to barely touch its long lean asymmetrical blackened steel base in perfect harmony. Materials are juxtaposed in graceful, linear designs where line extends beyond function. The eye travels and is compelled by stunning and balanced proportions. The design’s appeal lasts a lifetime.
With the invitation of a flying snake,one desolate and uninspired man accepts an invitation to visit The Circus of Ideas. Delight and self transformation ensues.
Enjoy the ride.
