Brandon Ross - Lord Masque

Apostles of Black sunshine

Lord Masque (Brandon Ross) is a Philadelphia area musician and outsider artist. He is a founding member/bass guitarist of the avant/progressive rock band the RedMasque and has composed two rune tone songs for the website of Inventor Karl Welz. He as been creating numerous artworks on and off since 2000 and recently had anoriginal oil pastel drawing “Quizaxx” featured in a juried exhibition at theManayunk art center.
“Always having an interest in art, metaphysics, and creating intuitively, I began doing several drawings, and then paintings, and oil pastels, and noticed a repeating theme-mostly strange figures surrounded by or connecting to geometric shapes, stryations, and patterns that seem to part of each other. These pictures invoke something deep in the psyche, and are eerily familiar in many ways. I believe what is depicted is a truer more pure reality and that we may be in the “canvas” of these beings.
I think the ultimate goal for a person should be to achieve personal and spiritual freedom and live life on your own terms and if somehow“drawing” things out can go towards achieving these ends then intuitive art especially what exists on the “outside” is a highly valuable resource.
