Art Description

Collage: Paper and Photo on Paper.

This handmade collage was inspired by the idea of putting images together that seemingly make sense, but when one looks closely, they see that something is just not right. Here I have placed a huge ocean liner in the midst of a jungle rice paddy. There is no real reason it should be in that locations. Behind the ship, the skies are filled with billowing smoke which implies that the liner is on fire. I've used this surrealistic approach of juxtaposing images that seem to fit but do not in order to try and give the viewer a feeling of otherworldliness or a dreamlike/nightmare quality.
