All these garlands prove nothing

All these garlands prove nothing (2012-2013)

"All these garlands prove nothing" is a record of different hair stylings donned between the years of 2008 to 2012. Each portrait conveys the same subject. The purpose of the record was to illustrate how arbitrary and malleable an identity may seem once specific embellishments are altered or disregarded altogether--in this case, hair. The drawings, done using ballpoint pen ink and markers on paper, cannot accurately portray the people and places I have been in the times allotted. What these portraits do capture is how cyclical time feels, for each persona is constantly at issue with the other. To look at the series collectively, is to look upon each subject through the filter of memory.
