“Thom Bennett explores the relationships between legend and modern
interpretation in his series The Mythology of Mardi Gras. His exploration of
this seasonal celebration looks past the surface of the occasion to
connect additional meanings between masks, costumes and role playing.
Bennett successfully associates the playful with the human need to
recall, reinterpret and reenact historic and cultural mythologies.”
