Illustrations by Brittany Schall

Brittany Schall deals in her work ‘Hair Studies’ with identity, form, and experimenting with new mediums. In her portraits she forgoes the presentation of the models faces almost entirely, only concentraiting on the models hair. The visually reduced portraits ask the audience to discuss the essence of the person portrayed, despite the missing key elements, as a face for example. Metaphorically, her works talks about contradictory roles that we have within ourselves, particularly with women. Femininity is both strong and soft. Sensuality can empower or subjugate, and ‘vulnerability can be courageous or cowardly’. She creates images that are constantly having an internal dialogue about conflicting thoughts and ideas. Schall about her own work: ‘My pieces also express the dynamics of relationships, specifically submitting yourself with another while still trying to maintain your own sense of self’.
