This is a wall drawing inspired by the hair that collects in the shower drain. These skeins of hair unravel across the gallery wall, tangled and unruly, but purposeful in their progression. I have a fascination with human hair and its power to elicit dread. When hair is displaced from its predictable place, the territory of the body, it can unnerve. After death of the body, hair can last for centuries without decomposing. I empower it with the role of harbinger, with the potential to portend disaster. Hair is manifested in my work as a monstrosity of unrest, the irrational, and deliberate loss of control.
