Leaf and Petal Design: The Collage Work of Karen Lynch
In the midst of a separate research project today, we came across the collage works of Leaf and Petal Design, aka the work of Karen Lynch. What initially began as found photography reassembled into fun juxtapositions then found us looking at her beautiful landscape collages that were surreal and almost like a sci-fi movie set.
The Adelaide, South Australia-based artist "creates both digital and hand-cut paper collages, made from vintage magazines, books and catalogues found at thrift shops, second-hand bookstores, markets and garage sales. Central to Karen’s art is the idea of resuscitating and transforming long forgotten pieces of the past into colourful, surreal, retro-futuristic landscapes."
