Abstract/Artist's Statement

This project focuses on representing three generations of Caribbean women through the lens of beauty and hair care. Together, we collaborate to document our hair stories, a vessel to reclaim our identity, nationhood, and culture. Through this lens, we authentically re-envision ourselves as we move towards becoming the faces of a new generation while simultaneously honoring the past through how memory is in the fabric of our clothes, the recipes we consume, and the hair that we care for, style, and protect within the Caribbean Archive.
