Collages by Adrienne Slane

February 13, 2013


'Adrienne Slane, a 2010 graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Art, creates intricate artwork from authentic vintage illustrations collected from many diverse sources. She combines images of plants, insects, animals, human anatomy, and religious figures into detailed, colorful collages where individual elements fit together like pieces in a puzzle. Inspired by the history of the curiosity cabinet and the myth of Eden, these works celebrate the beauty and interconnectivity of nature while also acknowledging the cyclical aspect of life, death, and decay.'
