PAINTING/ trichotillomania


"Trichotillomania (TTM), also known as hair pulling disorder, is a mental disorder characterised by a long term urge that results in the pulling out of one's hair. This occurs to such a degree that hair loss can be seen. Efforts to stop pulling hair typically fail. Hair removal may occur anywhere; however, the head and around the eyes are most common. The hair pulling is to such a degree that it results in distress."


I captured my uncontrollable desire of pulling, obsession of touching the texture of the root sheath and the distress of after-pulling on the canvases.
