Comb Over

The exhibition, Comb Over by Sherrie Knipe, consists of 70 individual oversized plywood combs, along with stools titled Tail Combs. The works are based upon the combs in use in our everyday lives. They were cut from 25mm plywood and no two are alike, though several are similar.

Combs are simple items that we all have a personal relationship with. They conjure memories of our past and perhaps suggest a future as our relationship changes with this humble object. The work may be nightmare for a hairdresser or middle aged man, but no matter what the relationship, in this context they present a humorous view of the everyday.

Comb Over by Sherrie Knipe is supported by the Tweed River Art Gallery and toured by Museum and Gallery Services Qld
