A. Jeffrey Zigulis Dream Masks

Artist Jeffrey Zigulis began his dream masks series as presents for schoolmates of his four-year-old son, Matthew - Zigulis told the children that the masks could help scare away bad dreams - one little boy is careful to see that his baby brother has his mask nearby whenever he’s sleeping.

Something about the masks—which were inspired by African, Mexican, and Micronesia masks—resonates for most people who see them - some are whimsical, other are dramatic and powerful - each clay mask is scraped, carved and burnished before it is painted with acrylics and accented with colored-wire hair - the color combinations used are influenced by Joseph Albers’ color theories. The evolution of the colors Zigulis uses are inspired by snorkeling trips to Molokai in Hawaii, and an interest in the colors and patterns that appear on the wings of butterflies and moths.
