Unintended Paintings…….

I made three masks each for two of the characters in my “UnMasking The Stranger” painting (see previous post HERE). I really liked the first masks but they just DID NOT work. As for the second round — well — um — hmmmm, they may served well as paper weights.

Here are the two paintings I created for those first masks. I think we all know people who fit the bill…..


Title: What if my Smile is the Lie?, acrylic paint and hand sculpted synthetic clay mask on gallery wrapped canvas, 14″ (h) x 11″ (w)Alison_E_Kurek_Painting_What_If_My_Smile_Is_The_Lie




This one was pretty much just for fun 🙂

New Work: The Gawkers



As the sun sets behind the city skyline (or is it the Buffalo Grain Elevators?) these four can’t help but gawk at the scene unfolding in front of them. What is it that has them so intrigued?!?
