Hair Sculpture by Jenine Shereos

Jenine Shereos is one of the few artists who’ve made delicate works of art with the ubiquitous human hair. A closer look at her work reveals that hundreds of individual strands are carefully woven to form a delicate lace-like leaf. The leaves were made by stitching individual strands of hair by hand into a water- soluble backing material. A tiny knot is made at the point where one strand of hair intersected another. When the backing was dissolved, the entire piece was able to hold its form. Some of the hair featured in her work is her very own while the others are presumably collected from acquaintances or salons. Regardless of their origin, these otherwise useless locks are now immortalized as unique works of art.
