Knot II

watercolor and hair on paper, 2014, 8"w x 6"h

This piece uses the rich metaphor of hair. It is a nonliving material produced by the living body. It contains the sequence of DNA belonging solely to the being it came from. It tangles and becomes a chore, and yet we are loath to remove it completely from our heads. It is beautiful in some contexts and disgusting in others. And the tangles it creates are like diagrams of the ways humans interact with one another. In this small drawing, I begin to address these concepts.
