Hair Portrait

hair piece

Hair Piece, A3, 2005

These portraits are about time, growth, identity, femininity, sexuality, deception, protection, bestiality, the abject and death. Hair is a symbol of vanity, virility, security, sexuality, bestiality and youth, and has many hidden layers of meaning. Hair can be read as a timeline, a map of experiences, a portrait made of hair should reveal…but these images are almost hidden. This ties into the title which is a play on words, but also about deception and hiding your true nature.
