The Feminist and the Follicle
The use of human hair as an art medium may seem a bit questionable to some, but for an artist like Rosemary Meza DesPlas, whos obsessed with the line, its a logical choice. Her works focuses on common feminist issues of gender and identity in a unique way using watercolors and hair drawings, which consist of her own hairs hand-sewn onto assorted papers and canvases. In her current exhibit, Personages, Meza DesPlas shows the sexualized female body and all of its parts in a new and interesting light through awkward groupings and isolations, whether theyre painted on a wall or suspended from the ceiling. Personages is on display through May 29 at Mighty Fine Arts, 419 N. Tyler St. Gallery hours are noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays and by appointment. Call 214-942-5241 or visit mfagallery.com.
Saturdays, Sundays, 12-5 p.m. Starts: May 7. Continues through May 29, 2011
