Embroideries Using Hair by Artist Sula Fay

sulafaybermudez-03

“Hair Embroideries” by artist Sula Fay, found via our July Submissions. She says this about the work:

“As an adolescent, I struggled with my hair. Being of half African and Puerto Rican descent I inherited very naturally curly hair. Alongside my white skinned, long straight haired friends, I felt different and unattractive. I went through many gruelling hours brushing, combing, and straightening. That process was very difficult and tedious, just like the process of my embroideries. To embroider with my hair I have to straighten each piece separately.”

More work below.
