In a dynamic interchange between artist, models and the audience, Terry Niedzialek creates hair sculptures using the hair of live models. “I use objects I gathered on walks in nature: tree branches, bird’s nest, gourds, ocean sponges, moss, feathers and bones, as well as natural and man-made objects I purchased, and integrate them into the hair, which is molded and built up with clay slip, and then painted over all for irony and poetics.” A hairdresser turned hair sculptor, she is part of a lineage ranging from tribal Africa to 18th Century France, and from Marcel Duchamp to Carmen Miranda, and presents this ancient art form in a fresh way. The hair sculptures are an extension of the body and the human spirit; they parade our identities, empower us and celebrate life. The creation of a hair sculpture is a ritual of personal and planetary transformation.
