An exhibition of drawings by Irish artist
28th May – 14th June 2015
Hang Up is an exhibition exploring the power and beauty of hair.
Frequently viewed as one’s ‘crowning glory’, beautiful hair can provide security whilst simultaneously creating
insecurity. This work is exploring the aesthetic of hair, as a symbol of one’s personal and cultural identity. Celebrating and analyzing hair as a feminine statement, is how the work in this exhibition has evolved and grown. It seeks to depict the sensitive and seductive nature of hair, whilst at the same time revealing a sinister, controlling under-layer.
