The event creator says
"Split Ends" is a solo exhibition of artwork by Sharon Norwood from her fascinating new series of the same name. Through depictions of her own hair, Norwood explores issues surrounding race and self-image. Split Ends features ink on paper drawings as well as similar drawings heat transferred onto antique porcelain. The porcelain tea set and plates adds a sculptural element to the series as well as introduces themes of domesticity, class and labor.
