A pure and unadulterated exploration of shape and form, “Catharsis” is a celebration of the transformative power of hairdressing. Like a kid let loose in a candy store, or salon as it were, Scott lets the darkest recesses of his imagination run wild as he frees himself from the confines of collections past. Cast with a distinct undertone of moody energy, there is an awakening and sense of abandon in these looks.
The role of texture in the creation of structure is the driving force behind each look, with Scott experimenting with the layering and contrast of differing textures within each image. Each look represents its own dark and distinct identity, yet each has emerged from the same source, subtly infusing the next. Styling plays perfectly into the brief of contrasting mediums, interesting lines and architectural shapes, continuing to play with the light and shadow. Eyes are heavily lined and hint at the tragedy within.
