The back story. These two pieces were created by Visual Artist Lisa Washington at the Polo Grounds Senior Center in Harlem USA, in the creativity/ multi-purpose room, before covid19.
The art session was focused on African inspired themes, using recycled materials, canvas, card board and neutral colored twine and acrylic paints to complete the art assignment. The paint colors were especially custom mixed for Lisa Washington by a member of the center who studied mixology, color theory and fine arts. The masks now have a home, hung in a lovely decorated private house in the upwardly mobile Ocean Hill Brownsville, a section of Brooklyn, New York.
