Hands and Hair III

Hands and Hair III

Piece description from the artist

I cut my long, blonde hair and donated it to charity a few years ago. I decided to paint a self-portrait depicting my hands holding the lock that was cut. My hair is part of my identity, yet it is also changing and growing constantly. As an artist, I see my hair and hands as stand-ins for my face in a self-portrait.
