Exhibition: Sat, Oct 9, to Sun, Oct 31 2010
“A man’s face can grow it’s own art. It is a canvas for which the owner can decide how he wants to present himself. Obviously some men have more to work with than others (which can be a either a blessing or a curse). Why grow facial hair? Why not? The associations and stereotypes that surround different style of facial hair is quite amazing, there generally is only a few degrees of difference between the iconic look of a Greek god and a homeless man, between an officer and a porn star, between a hippy and a confederate general. Facial hair is more then just hair on the face, it says something about the man behind it, it’s a very personal choice. In The Chronicles of Follicles series, the Dorn Brothers explore and play with those associations and iconic symbols in a surreal and fictional way."
The large print photos have a cinematic tone to them and the subjects in the series range in age, occupation, nationality, and beard length.
