Human Hair Embroidery-Hair Artwork by Jennfer Perry

These fabulous hair creations have inspired the JLife Haircare team.

 As we look for new and innovative ideas for hair, we came across on artist that stands out for her use of  human hair.

These embroidered human hair pieces hang in galleries but what if the sculptures were had sewn, as wigs to be used in fashion shows? What a great display of artistic talent and a great inspiration to freelance hair stylists and artistic directors

Artist Statement:

 
In the fall of 2000 I traveled to the Island of Jersey in the English Channel where hundreds of Hitler’s Atlantic Wall bunkers stud the coastline. Some of them looked as if they had been built thousands of years ago, with their stepped “porches” and tomblike portals, and others were eerily futuristic. These beautiful and terrible fortresses became metaphors for personal and artistic issues that I was dealing with at the time: safety, fear, vulnerability, hatred, cruelty.

I reference the bunker forms by making schematic drawings on paper, and I then pierce the surface with a needle hundreds of times along the pencil lines. I knot individual strands of hair end to end and sew them into the paper or canvas. The hair creates bisecting planes that overlap and build up to create a schematic “drawing” which floats in a horizonless space. I am interested in representing closed, illusionistic rooms or spaces that hold memory. The fragility and visceral quality of the hair softens and humanizes the precise perspectival drawings of these imaginary fortresses, as it creates a play on scale and density.
