Details:The wig shops in the artist’s Brooklyn neighborhood inspired the nine monumental paintings of wigs on mannequin heads in Derrick Adams: LOOKS. Hair and wigs carry enormous cultural and political weight in Black culture in particular, rendering them powerful tools for self-representation. Adams seizes on the ability to command one’s image via the change of a wig. He aims to make the desire to be unique and stand out—through the practice he refers to as “costuming”—normal to the broader public. His paintings do not show generic mannequin heads: the geometry of the faces is individualized with varied skin tones and makeup to complement the attitudes projected by the wigs. The artist views self-adornment as powerful. The larger-than-life scale and the direct gaze of the heads give them command of the gallery space. These paintings are about being seen—honoring spectacle, celebrating what the artist calls everyday “fantastic-ness,” and telegraphing power over one’s image.
