Layering vividly coloured locks of synthetic hair as if they were veils of oil paint, Iranian-born artist Hiva Alizadeh creates new abstractions. Almost intangible, shimmering and vaporous, his wall-mounted locks emerge from the two-dimensionality of the painted surface. Currently on show at THE FLAT – Massimo Carasi alongside the works of Guillaume Linard-Osorio and Michelangelo Penso, Alizadeh’s vibrant ‘paintings’ illustrate how hair, in the hands of an artist, can take on a whole new life of its own.
