HAIR PIECES

Hair, one could say, is an extension of the self. For Hazelton hair is used to extend his geometric drawing and to bring it into three-dimensional space.

 

Separating and stretching each strand, he then follows the same geometric structure used in his drawing, thus transforming these bunches into finely woven sheets, which can then be cut, shaped and formed into sculpture. Structured in this way Hazelton defies the usual associations one might expect when incorporating hair into art – for example, associations with sensuality or fetishism. Hair becomes more like a semi-translucent skin or skeleton, or a means to draw in space.
