Hair Drawings

© Alexandra Buhl

Year: 2014-2019

For years I have been been conjuring faces and figures onto the tiles of my shower wall, using loose strands of my hair. Starting out as just a bit of fun, over time the hair drawings have developed into a deeply personal artform.

Edition 15: 59,4 x 84 cm & 29,7 x 42 cm, pigment ink print on Rag Baryta paper.

Edition 25: 24 x 24 cm, pigment ink print on Epson Semigloss paper.

Exhibited at Siger Gallery, London, March 2019, at The Affordable Art Fair, Hong Kong, May 2019 & at The Tommy Flowers, London, August 2019.

Two hair drawing artbooks were created with Malene Lerager of Co'libri Bookbindery, April 2018. The books contain 33 hair drawings printed on Scandia 2000 130g paper, bound with my hair and original tiles from my bathroom, including a unique hair drawing glued onto the front tile. The book won the Danish Bookdesign price for best handbound book and was exhibited at The Black Diamond june-august 2018 and at BogForum oct 26-28th 2018.
