The Imaginary Beings series from Johanna Goodman are delightful and witty. Through her collages, she is able to create so much emotion (and attitude) by playing with character’s facial expressions and posture. Plus some ultra-fabulous couture garments.

A Better Tomorrow has a quiet yet eerie vibe with the use of high contrast black and white fabrics against grainy and blurry imagery. This fantastic collage series is from artist Justin Plakas, whose a multi-media artist living and working in Las Vegas. New Mexico.

The collage work of Bryan Olson are quite whimsical in a “predictions of the future from the mid-century” sort of way. My husband and I are just oohing and awing over each cosmic landscape, soaking in the retro color palette and stellar imagery.

The collage work of Virginia Echeverria Whipple is awesome! Each piece feels like a still from a wild dream; confetti rain, spaces slowing collapsing inward, floating abstract shapes, cheetahs covered in fresco!

Randy Grskovic transforms our perception of reality through his collaged work. Instilling humor, beauty and mystery into familiar imagery: landscapes, family portraits and candid photographs. Memory is tricky, when we recall a moment in our history holes appear in the story, so we use imagery as a guide. Through his work, Randy explores what can happen when this documentation is lost, how will we remember?

Corralling clients such as Devendra Banhart, Coca Cola and Nylon Magazine, artist Liz Riccardi is spreading her wacky illustrations all over the place. What I love about Liz’s work, is the pleasure of creating and imagination is so apparent in each of her pieces.

A former astrophysician and hypnotist turned artist, Julien Pacaud, creates prints lost in reverie. Each imaginative scene appears as a daydream, combining vintage imagery with muted tones and scant bursts of vibrancy. Pacaud’s work is available through several galleries and at his shop.

Emir Šehanović creates these eerie portraits by layering a hand collaged mass over the individual’s face to eliminate or distort their identities. There is little to no information on Emir’s website regarding concepts to this manipulation, but each mass reminds me of the results of a burning photograph. Curling up away from the center revealing a grotesque array of shapes and colors.

Matt Wisniewski creates the most alluring portraits by integrating gleaming landscapes and natural forms in a manner that distorts and accentuates the human figure. Matt’s collaged portraits are a result of images collected of a variety of sources, all of which he’s willing to share, plus you can buy prints of his work. Although I wish the image above (from his Mineral Minds series) was available; a wonderful collection of images and color coming together to create this pensive character that reminds me of a synchronized swimmer.
