BEHIND is a series of portraits by the Paris and Hamburg based artist Rusch. The identities of the portrayed subjects are unrecognizable behind make-up, texture and material. By overlapping layers Rusch evokes an irritating intensity of emotions. Masks are used to protect or hide but masks can also work as an intensifier or converter. As an interface between inside and outside they enhance the possibility of increasing expression or emotions. Rusch's work shows us archetypes of emotions.
