Alexandra Elizabeth in ‘Thread Lightly’ by Gregory Harris for Dazed, Winter 2014
Posted Dec 09, 2014
Alexandra Elizabeth bares the strings of submission in ‘Thread Lightly’ by Gregory Harris for Dazed. I ponder the passage of time as visual mischief is worn as a mask. The thread of salvation seen on the skin like waves that wash up on the shore. Symbolism speaks in this tectonic tale of abstract facial art. Beauty Editor, Yadim, captures our imagination as the color of chaos caresses skin. Makeup worn in a different light, like a fashion phenom coming out of the night. Basking in a sea of strange, black & red strings sing, as garish lines graze the features. Faux hair falls all about, as Holli Smith, uses a unique mix of tightly fitted skull caps and avant-garde head wraps. Yadim celebrates his new Dazed position, showing…the art of expressionism shines through the magic of metamorphosis.
