One of the most potent aspects of maskwork you'll find, for those willing to experiment with it, is the capacity to strip off the surface layers. And once stripped off, you can finally say what you are, not what you would like to be, or what you fear others may see you as. Because what you are is more than good enough; to me, art is really about somehow touching that part of you, though so heavily protected by the layers, that really would most love to be touched.

A very thought-provoking post, William. My take is that for at
least some people, the 'masks' they have are so hard-wired to their beings, that it is virtually impossible to them to be reached through their barriers of fear and pride. I have to admit having been made feel pretty uncomfortable listening to "Killing Hurts Gives You The Secrets", and couldn't work out why the lyrics were affecting me in such a way. Perhaps you've found at least one way of trying to reach out?
