"Good Hair is an oil painting series, focusing on the cultural importance of hair styling and hair care amongst black people. The painting series is a celebration and exploration of both individualities as well as commonness. A stepping stone to a future project focusing on individuality.
The first selection of paintings adopts a window viewing aesthetic, peering into intimate moments of hair care, and creating images of familiar scenes. The intricate borders, designed as a way of elevating the sitter, take their influence from elegant rug designs and William Morris prints."
