Christian Boehmer´s artwork shows people in the contrast between anonymity and self-expression, between egoism and self-criticism.

He disclaims the people´s  heads  and uses  paperbags instead,which can carry  or express  a deeper message, that goes beyond the pure  representation itself.

On the one hand, the paperbag itself is the easiest way to self maskerade, but also an abstract way to construct an unifomity, that makes the single person be part of an undefined mass. Although the masses of mankind tries  to underline it´s uniqueness, we alle are equal.

 

„We wear masks not to hide, but to reveal hidden parts of ourselves“
