    About The Work

    Artist Kenya Robinson often draws on consumer items to relay ideas of black culture, granting trivial objects an elevated level of importance as a link to broader themes of heritage. In Personage, Robinson uses an ordinary the hair comb as a symbol of female African-American beauty. At first glance, the work strikes as abstract, linear, flat, and symmetrical. Closer observation reveals that the intersecting lines are actually overlapping combs of different shapes and sizes. The comb emerged as one of Robinson's primary sources of influence in Hairpolitic: Pursuit of Nappiness, her traveling exhibit, as a tool to shape awareness of the larger implications of these cosmetic objects and their role in cultural identity.
