"Masquerade" 2009.
"Portraits and fashion shots commissioned by magazines
defaced with shells collected on the Bay of Biscay.
There’s an unavoidable sense of a lively pun
at play here between the calcareous artifact of marine life
with the living skull. A playful attempt to undermine pomposity and vanity,
an homage to Marcel Duchamp's mustached Mona Lisa."
