Masks for the Modern Tribe

Jud Wimhurst’s "Masks for the Modern Tribe" is a series of works that explore the identity of 21st century consumers. Throughout history tribes have worn war masks into battle. The masks were designed to intimidate and strike fear into the enemy, to protect the wearer and to evoke the spirit and strength of particular animals and gods and transpose it to the warrior. Jud's collection of war masks are designed to reflect the way in which we deal with our own battles in a modern world.
