Check the table of contents of any fashion magazine and you’ll see that hair is commonly portrayed as a battleground for women — dying it, taming it and removing it are all part of the mass-marketed campaign of socially-acceptable femininity. Continuing her exploration the alternate possibilities of beauty, Hi-Fructose Volume 22 cover artist Winnie Truong presents another series of intricate, delicate drawings. Hair takes sculptural shapes, forming veritable environments that sometimes soothe and, other times, smother, her muses. Truong will open a solo show titled “A Slow Immersion” tonight at Erin Stump Projects in Toronto, where the artist is based. Take a look at the artworks in the show below, images courtesy of ESP.
