Henna is the complex designs done through natural dyes to darken skin. I attempt to mimic the designs through the use of paper cutouts. I started by tracing hands on black paper and then I drew out various designs based on traditional henna tattoos. From there I proceeded to use an exacto knife to cut out the designs. With black paper I was able to use the negative space to create imagery that mirrors the designs seen in the tattoos. When presenting my piece I use motifs such as suns and multiple hands to create a cohesive piece that represents power and strength. As well as the never ending reach to one another.
