Christa Joo Hyun D’Angelo's CollagesErotica // Wednesday, 01 Feb 2012
Korean-Italian American artist, Christa Joo Hyun D’Angelo’s creates fleshy-luxe collages full of legs, skin, texture and textile. A mix of erotic / fashion spreads with a little fetishist edge…
'Her work investigates the presence of commodity fetishism in our cultural consciousness through a process that deconstructs society’s insatiable visual appetite by appropriating and altering images intended for the masses from commercial branding, fashion and celebrity culture.
With juxtapositions and a subtractive editing process, she highlights the mechanisms of seduction used in worldwide advertising appeals.'
