Kami/髪/神 reimagines the Japanese folklore belief that a woman’s hair is interconnected to one’s spirit, soul, and energy. Many cultures have beliefs that hair holds a spiritual significance, and it's the same in Japan. This series explores the cultural, spiritual, and historical significance of hair by painting women with flowing hair, while intertwining them with references to traditional Ukiyo-e block prints and modern Japanese subcultures from the Heisei era.
