Trudy Askew - Pretense ll
Saturday, May 5th, 5 - 8 pm
Trudy Askew's recent paintings portray the surreal human circus. "We all populate this vast theatre, this house of mirrors, where things are not as they appear." The actors that she creates identify themselves one mask at a time, by concealing their identitiies and establishing new ones. These performers invite the audience into the big top with them, barely pulling back the curtain to reveal the artifice behind the show. As observers, the response is bittersweet. The play casts the "brave face" we hear in public under a new spotlight, revealing the fragility of this mask that conceals and protects our new personae.
