Nature’s Intent™ is an illusory cosmetic company specializing in hair care for an acceptably natural you. The collaborative work considers the material and presentation possibilities of the printed image, while also exploring the personal histories existing within a shared cultural community. Utilizing the aesthetics of beauty advertising and the reproductive possibilities of printmaking, Nature’s Intent™ investigates concepts of Western beauty standards, cultural identity, and the history of media representation of women of color.
