Catalogue Note

Grotjahn is well-known in the art world for his radiating butterfly paintings, his mask sculptures, and his detailed artistic practice. However, it was only as a result of an injury he sustained while working on his Butterfly series that Grotjahn began to create masks from repurposed objects such as beer boxes and toilet paper rolls.  In the present work, the artist blends his radial paintings, dynamic face paintings, and mask sculptures into one. Grotjahn’s thoughtful artistic practice shines through the eyes of this work.
