Only Her Hairdresser Knows For Sure
Not for sale. This painting is titled, “Does She or Doesn’t She? Only Her Hairdresser Knows for Sure...” This was the advertising slogan for Clairol hair coloring products in the 60’s and early 70’s. The implication is that a woman can color her hair, no one would know, and thus she would preserve the illusion of her youth and attractiveness. In my painting, the woman is obviously coloring her hair; it is not a secret to anyone. Several questions then arise: Who is she actually fooling? Is it the outside observer, or is it herself? What mask is she actually hiding behind? How does she feel about herself and this ritual she must go through?
I know the answers to these questions, but I would rather leave them open for discussion.
