Hair seems like one of the more difficult things to draw, illustrating both singularity and plenitude is the aim. Hong Chun Zhang conveys this and more, as her surreal drawings of hair infused objects are intended to show both the beauty of long hair as well as the repulsion of hair in strange places.
In conveying this dual purpose, her drawings have a hypnotic quality and are mind-bending in the way that they speak to all the senses. Hong Chun Zhang is truly an artist gifted in portraying the philosophical visually and it’s no surprise as she has been steeped in fine arts from a very young age. Both her parents are retired fine art professors and her two sisters are also artists.
