Entanglement, oil on paper

This piece of art is called Entanglement, its painted in oils on paper, and is inspired by women’s hair and how women have dogmatic beauty standards placed upon them:

Entanglement is a painting that explores the relationship between women’s hair and the dogmatic societal standards that are placed upon them. The painting depicts a woman’s head with her hair entangled in braids and knots. The braids and their position over the face are a symbol of the many ways in which women’s expectations of beauty are unpractical and at times crippling.

The painting is meant to be a reminder that women’s hair is a powerful expression of identity that should be freely expressed and that women should not be confined by the dogmatic standards of beauty that are placed upon them.
