Hair and Braid Paintings by So Yoon Lym

Juxtapoz // Friday, 28 Oct 2011

At first we thought these corn row paintings by So Yoon Lym with acrylic on paper, were a bit silly. But after we started looking at the details of each piece, and how they are displayed in an exhibition, they took on a whole new life and appreciation.

Lym has created an entire series of hair and braid patterns after living in Patterson, New Jersey for years. Says Lym, "These acrylic on paper hair and braid patterns are based on photos I have taken of students and strangers I have come across in Paterson, New Jersey where I have worked for the past 9 years."
