These are a small series of New Beard Archetypes that I did for my first Toronto showing (November 2008), the group show "Amber One Foot Below" curated by Jay Isaac.
This series was meant to evoke people one would immediately seem to recognize, hence the archetypes in the name. They were also a modern riff on my Monster Mask series with their blank eye-holes for eyes. However, I found the subject matter too banal to linger on for too long hence the latest series of FANTASY BEARDS: beards that I'd like to see.
Reminder: the fantasy beards are only up until Sunday!
