Hair Lines

Lydia’s exhibition of drawings…

Hair Lines is a series of mixed media drawings developed from Lydia’s daily sketches on her way to and from her East London studio and from conversations while having her hair done at Beaucatcher salon in Stoke Newington.

What, and who, Lydia spots on her journeys depends on when she travels: an early start means labourers, then City workers, there’s the creative industry rush hour and a late night catches partygoers and shift workers making their weary ways home. At any time of day, one of the things that expresses London in all its human variety is hair: colourful, subtle, modern, vintage, sculptural, practical, point of difference or badge of belonging.

The bold line style has been developed for the salon’s space and sightlines.

Lydia has designed a folding, zine format A7 mini catalogue to accompany the exhibition.

Beaucatcher salon, 44 Stoke Newington Church Street, N16 0LU
The exhibition runs until the end of September.
