alexis mackenzie does surrealist collage


i love surrealist collage; especially those of max ernst, which is why i really dig the collages by alexis mackenzie, who hand cuts and pastes each one. although i think i've seen her images floating around, i really got into her & her work on this studio visit post at fecal face. she has a new show 'never be sad' up now park life, which includes text pieces spelled out with flowers and other natural elements. i like the idea of nature arranging itself to give you coded signs, but i really love the work that features women in supernatural situations, such as the four headed lady with coral lightning growing from their eyes above.
