“Tash ‘n’ Nose” is one of several names I’ve come across for the classic “groucho-style” gimmick specs. Aside from just being a fan of this specific gimmick, I look to this novelty as a transformative tool. Masks and disguises play a large part in my work, thematically and formally. I strive towards a slow reveal for the viewer. Strip tease. This work is titled Tash ‘n’ Nose.
