In her drawings, Winnie Truong is able to mold hair into any form she wishes. The colourful hair is like a head piece, but it also seems to be a living entity all of its own. Her subjects are sometimes overtaken by it, sometimes comforted by its presence. The recurrence of skulls, double faces, and strange growths, create an unsettling tone to the deceivingly colourful and highly rendered drawings. The skulls, often placed on the back of the head, seem to be a manifestation of the inner turmoil of the subjects, where often the viewer is presented with only half of the face and has to turn to the skull to understand the depths of their psychology.
