Paint & Polish: Cultural Economy and Visual Culture from the West Side | Author: Freek Lomme
Paint & Polish: Cultural economy and visual culture from the West Side sources visual inspiration from the microeconomic culture of Hispanic and African-American nail artists in the Northwest Side of Chicago. It fosters engagement with these artists by highlighting their work and collaborating with them. Included are oral histories, conversations with various nail artists, portraits by Helen Maurene Cooper, and photography from their business.
Inspired by these sources and the visually tempting, distinct style of the nail art, Cooper’s photographic artworks open a gateway to elaborate on the visual identification of nail art. In both photography and the nail art scene, concerns such as gesture, self-expression and labor are prominent. The accompanying writings take these issues into consideration.
