I didn't notice the eyes at the top of the first image at first. There's something really nice about the head being upside down - I think most folks would probably leave it at a more grounded orientation. But here I guess in a way it lets that giant night sky-like mass be something else first instead of just her hair.

I like your take on repetition in the remaining images too. With silkscreen it's easy enough to make exact duplicates but here each figure is treated differently. It's as if the ink is charcoal and you've rubbed and erased bits of the image to see what you can do with it. Looking at them in sequence it's kind of like looking at photographs of a coast or mountain gradually changing over many years. Although they still suggest the same image somehow despite the changes. I like too how new forms come out through the interaction of the three figures in the middle image.
