Mask in raw bronze on patinated black bronze plate. Presented on an oak block.

"The sculptures of Irina Shark show great virtuosity, portraying a range of feelings inspired by reality and realised through her own interpretation. Appearing frozen in time, they capture the emotion behind an expression, the singularity of a face, an intense gesture caught in a suspended moment… Casting her sharp and curious gaze on our world, Irina’s work reflects her own inner world, a world which tries to understand and express the essence of things, to go towards ‘the truth’."
