  • Catalogue Essay

    "For this serialized drawing with elaborate hand work, Gallagher has taken advertisements for wigs from the black photo magazine Ebony and preserved them through a series of transformations. Her wig ladies are fugitives, conscripts from another time and place liberated from the musty, yellowed "race" magazines of the past. With photogravure, plasticine, paint, ink, toy eyeballs, scissors, these icons are transformed from and back into the paper that has held them captive for decades."
