The Winnie Truong A Slow Immersion drawings are currently on display at Toronto's ESP Gallery. The show will act as host to Truong's penchant for linear design, apparent in strips of dashes that have been amassed within her depictions of faceless women.

Running central to Truong's linear style is her exclusive focus upon tresses. The anonymous women that she features all have heaping masses of hair, showcased in each piece via blue, red and yellow shades. In some cases, only bits of hands and heads are exposed, covering the rest of the bodies in braids and swirls. She explores the notion of hiding here as hair becomes much like a veil in A Slow Immersion.
