Canadian artist Winnie Truong exhibits her first solo show – Double Twist – in Montreal at Galerie Trois Points from October 13th to November 10th.
Winnie’s work investigates the boundaries between ‘beauty and ugliness, delicate and grotesque’ with what you would call follicle-ly challenged characters. Each portrait is painstakingly created with attention to fine detail, in turn producing a range of strange beauties.
The work aims to question our cultural relationship with beauty as concept, and how hair can be ‘both a source of desire and revulsion’. Think bearded ladies and hairy backs, as someone very wise somewhere once said: ‘one man’s trash is another man’s treasure’.
