The painting is part of a series of 7 portraits representing the moments of a performance in which an interpreter has lost his identity to transfigure himself into Eric and what the mask suggested.
Reconnecting to ancestral religious traditions, the recent projects of Gregorio Samsa proposes a re-reading of our contemporaneity through a filter typical of tribal societies. The painted fencing mask that makes prominent appearances in these works forms the mediative element through which, a spirit of our time is made visible. Through the elicitation of questions surrounding identity and image in art, Samsa reveals to us that a mask might reveal as much as it hides.
