The work of Sonya Clark explores the issues of race and ideas of beauty through interesting uses of materials.
She often references hair as a signifier for race and culture-
Sometime making works from actual hair and combs.
As well as referencing skin color and the western expectation and pressure to appear a certain way.
Her exploration of materials is admirable and her cohesion in statement is refreshing. I hope to get to see more of her work in person.
See more work and some wonderful artist statements at her website.
