Perhaps the most important image in the collection, Cutting my Hair, presents a woman about to cut a clump of her own hair whilst staring into the mirror. In an attempt to embody her former self, this painting alludes to the unrelenting nature of time and a yearning to relive the past, notions that are central to this exhibition. In more graphic images, visuals of the decaying female figure can be seen.
Rhys James' reappearance in London comes three years after her 2015 residency at Columbia University in New York.
