Blowing Hair by Matthew Cox

Matthew Cox is just plain brilliant. I just found this today and I had to put this on my list of favorites. I love that he has two HUGELY (is that even a word) different mediums collide in one piece is breathtaking to me. The embroidery of her "face" (or the face she wants to project on society) covers her raw and vulnerable soul. The texture, the fact that embroidery takes a long time to make, alluding to the fact our facades for ourselves take a while to come to terms with... All of it just blows my mind.
