Hart House Mask


Another sculpture from outside of Hart House on the U of Toronto campus. This one titled "Mask #1" is by artist Evan Penny and was installed in 1990. What is so great about it is that it is concave rather than convex so that the face recedes into the piece rather than coming towards you - neat optical effect! I had posted another Penny piece here.

That is by far my favorite one that you've shot so far.

I love this sculpture, though I somehow find it a little disturbing!
