The Hair Drawings

These two pieces are me viewing hair in a surrealistic way and investigating the idea of being tangled and trapped by using hair as a cage. The darker one is hair which overlaps looking like fibres from body ligaments bound tightly together. The reason I am looking at hair is because each strand is individually flowing in a different way. Hair I can see Enclosing and trapping because we have thousands of hairs which could mean thousands of insecurities caging me and pushing me further away from where I want to go. The other piece has more pastel colours and with a knife I peeled away bits of random pieces from the paper by wripping off the top layer of colour. I outlined these shapes as permanent pieces missing from the coloured entwined hair symbolising gaps to escape this cage of hair.
