HOUSTON, TX – Artists Sherry Tseng Hill and Jim Adams are taking a traditional item, the mask, and putting their own twists on it.

Hill uses engineering skill to craft colorful and vibrant masks out of recycled paper products.

“Masks are historically and culturally diverse,” Hill said. “They are a creative expression of the human existence.”

Adams sculpts steel from recycled train tracks and other sources to create masks, monster figures and monoliths.

“The steel, they’ve done something in their life,” Adams said. “I’ve saved them from the scrap piles and the furnaces, and I’ve let them continue to be something.”

The artists’ pieces are on display at the Archway Gallery’s “Masks, Monsters and Monoliths” exhibit until January 5.
