Sonya Clark

I was at Borders the other day, reading magazines and not paying for them. HA! I happened to pick up a Fiber Arts magazine and found the beautiful works of Sonya Clark. Her work is not only unique and organic but attracts me in a biological standpoint. Sonya, for her roots collection, uses hair, her hair and other women's hair to form structures that symbolizes their roots and in some way, hair is the perfect medium. It is visually significant for the African American culture and in the biological sense, it is the holder of all ancestral information in the forms of DNA. Be sure to check out her website.

Sonya's hair as the hand and her mothers hair as the pearl.
