About The Artwork

This work is from my series "Big Issues" which will debut in London in Sept 2015. The work is all made from Vogue magazines and depicts the pretty and the ugly side of fashion publications. Thriving since its inception in 1892, “Vogue’s” title translates to “an expression of popularity;” fitting for a magazine dubbed as the world’s most influential. Recognized globally for its fashion and lifestyle editorials packed with the “cult of personality” Wintour has built of her opinionated writers, it’s published monthly in 23 national and regional editions. “Vogue” is dressed in silk and fantasy, and the most famous of the ultra glitterati pose in dresses most girls couldn’t dream themselves into; it’s a romance novel and yet it helps define pop culture and society at large. “Vogue” tackles the biggest issues and how fashion affects them. And it’s what inspired the 20-piece collection of mixed media portraits that I have built to highlight the entire catalogue and history of the magazine. The work is covered in plexiglass and pointed on wood. The work will be available to ship after the closing of the exhibition at the end of September.

Born in Breckenridge Colorado, Annie Terrazzo surrounded herself with dreams. Her childhood was unorthodox and chaotic, having been raised by a mother who was a schizophrenic adult entertainer and a father who was a formula one race car driver. This chaos was countered by a large family who, through silversmithing and plein air painting, taught her the value of and method to making beauty in the world. She spent large portions of her time writing plays on an old typewriter, watching movies, and dreaming of Paris. After graduating from the Academy of Art in San Francisco, CA, Terrazzo began her career in trash portraiture, focusing on using found objects, newspapers, and magazines. She strives to create work that allows the viewer to recognize image and text based language, drawing you in through the technical skill she possesses and the attention to detail that permeates all of her work. Terrazzo has exhibited her work internationally and locally, with her work being placed in several permanent collections across the United States. "Through the lens of the past, Annie projects a contemporary mindset that bisects historical memory and the contemporary cultural context to create a realm where the body finds an equilibrium of both ideal beauty and sexuality, as well as personal expression and ironic juxtaposition within a contemporary mind frame and the cultural memory of the past. Annie's work instantly draws in the viewer and stands out among other contemporary art due to its familiarity, but also it's originality and undeniable intention, and masterful craftsmanship.” - Lauren Maley, Art Dealer for OHWOW Gallery in Los Angeles, Contemporary Art Historian, Writer, Philanthropist, LAAA Advisory Board Member, and LACMA Modern and Contemporary Art Council Member
