Decomposition en douceur, 2020-21

This series of collages was made during the lockdown. Most of them were taken from design magazines, and the artist started working with the magazines in her home before buying more, as newsstands and supermarkets were the only shops open during at that time. Cutting and pasting these magazine clippings into abstract compositions, they sometimes evoke surrealist images, notably because of the play of shadows, colours and volumes.
