Art Description

Painting: Oil

This painting "Noh Theater Masks: Jealousy" is one of diptych piece of "Japanese Noh Theater Masks: Envy and Jealousy". In the image Jealousy, I used two Noh theater masks called "ko-omote" and "hannya" to express Jealousy; the envy reaches the peak and transforms into jealousy. The force of jealousy overwhelms and destroys the mask ko-omote that still showing smiling with full of confidence.

Through the diptych piece "Envy" and "Jealousy" I wanted to express the emotional conflicts created from the deep, dark side of the human mind.
