So Yoon Lym

I am loving these braid paintings by So Yoon Lym. There is something so mesmerizing by the patterns in their hair. I also really like these because of their focus on the craft- this "low art" form of haur braiding can become something of higher value when you just take a minute to really look. Hair is also something that reflects someone's identity whether it is culturally, socially,and/or ethnically. There is a lot going on in these peice I really enjoy.
