Un-masking: The Truth.
Multi-media masks and poetry by Ishana Ingerman.
Ishana is a Burlington resident with a B.A. in Fine Art. Her healing journey after cancer and subsequent physical and chemical injuries have led her back to clay. She has worked in ceramic sculpture, but only recently started combining her love of knitting and fiber-arts with the more solid ceramic form.
The masks are a double allegory, representing Ishana's deep spiritual journey as a wounded healer, and her ongoing struggle in a community where she must wear a mask, to protect herself from the toxins in many "everyday" products.
