The Root of The Matter
"The Root Of The Matter"
Digital Collage on Watercolor paper
“The Root Of The Matter” investigates past stories, spaces and histories, in order to challenge passive notions of looking.
The work is realized as digital collage prints on paper. Imagery is sourced from the MET 1840’s digital collection and aims to question historical constructed identity and explore the intersection of race and beauty.
Ultimately the work aims to investigate my own thoughts and questions about hair, race and culture.
