Maskhara with Lizard and Cricket

Avish Khebrehzadeh
Maskhara with Lizard and Cricket, 2014
L.G.R sunglasses with gold, black diamonds, and enamel silver pin
Edition of 25

Avish Khebrehzadeh in collaboration with Elisabetta Cipriani Gallery has created a limited edition of the high-end sunglasses by L.G.R., enriched with details in different precious materials. The sunglasses, as a physical mask and facial ornament, are a deliberate play with the notion of a mask, focal in the artist’s more recent works, being in essence a study of conditions, behaviours or gestures through which the individual either conceals the true self or projects an alternative self.

Our life is a mask, even to ourselves. It is neither visible nor tangible. It is simply there. We mock, ridicule, transform our masks as we come upon others. (Avish Khebrehzadeh)
