Stunning Sketches by Stella Im Hultberg (10 pieces)

One of the Met’s favorite artists, Stella Im Hultberg works with pencils, wood and sketchbooks to make illustrations for her upcoming show Fragmented, which runs from March 11th to March 21st at London Miles gallery.

Midway through preparing for this show, Hultberg started obsessively drawing hair strands and folds. As she says, “My own, personal meaning in the hair started to take shape slowly: hair seems to be something that we have no control over. It grows as if it's got a mind of its own - the speed at which it grows, or its shape, form or texture, we can't control. Maybe I am using hair to represent a part of oneself that one wants to get away from and hide, or the opposite, something you want to protect yourself with and hide behind.”
