Current Work

I am continuing my work on hair and identity with a series of works examining blonde hair as a symbol of European (and specifically German) beauty ideals. I am working to explore the connections between different art forms which purported to express universal ideals of beauty, such as Classicist architecture and Modernist painting, and ideas of racial purity. These ideas are only partially formed and I hope to strengthen them as I continue this work.
The pieces are made of commercially available human hair extensions, which I have applied to vinyl screens using wig-making techniques.
