One of the stronger elements of collage work is the usage of parts from various other wholes, or the appropriation of things. Holli Schorno creates meticulous looking worlds from a vast variety of mechanical and automotive ephemera. Some of these pieces are rather monotone-like, which I just adore, and I really enjoy the stark white on the backgrounds. It's a very graphic approach and really the intricacy of her work is quite a contrast, making for some really cool pieces! She has shown at the wonderfully supportive gallery Pavel Zoubok, which has a reputation for representing various collage artists.
This piece I really liked, something about the grandiose branching antenna was quite organic and it reminded me of a quirky tree...
There's a gallery of works on mylar layers that is quite amazing here. It looks as tho she did collage on mylar sheets and then married them together, creating a ghosted cast on portions of the artwork. Sweet.
This last piece I found on the Pavel Zoubok site.This piece is really my fave of the ones I have seen. I really enjoy the landscape feel to the whole thing, the bombastic crazy constellated sky....I want to go here today and hang out in the convoluted skies of Holli Schorno.
