“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.”

“Strange Plants” is a celebration of plants in contemporary art. The book was edited by Zio Baritaux and features the work of 25 artists.

The artists include: Paul Wackers, Lee Kwang-Ho, Taylor McKimens, Stephen Eichhorn, Aiyana Udesen, Richard Colman, Mark Mulroney, Patrick Martinez, Matt Furie, and many others.
