Style File: Writhe
“Writhe” is inspired by black and red art, in particular the abstract artworks of artist Russell Mills.
Mills paints predominantly black and red portraits with the faces in focus yet the bodies are blurred with brushstrokes of red smudged throughout the works.
What appealed to the é SALON Creative Team most about these paintings was the exaggerated shapes of the hair; they were inspired to create these shapes but to add an editorial aspect, something that was embellished and yet relatable to their salon work.
