Eugenia Loli’s Collages Are Full of Vintage Eye Candy

Collage artist Eugenia Loli is originally from Greece and is currently based in California. Loli uses vintage magazine clippings, advertisements, and erotica to cobble together otherworldly scenes that often have a sense of humor. Through out her work, she indulges her viewers with lush and opulent imagery: verdant mountains, exotic flowers, curvaceous bodies, and iridescent galaxies. If advertisements promise their viewers happiness, Loli offers us an immaculate utopia. With so much eye candy, her work prioritizes visual pleasure above all else.

British artist Abigail Reynolds does not take images at face value. Using the art of collage, she enhances the original picture by creating intricate assemblages out of repurposed vintage photographs, magazines, encyclopedias, atlases, and other materials she finds. "The act of folding one image into the other pushes them out into three dimensions in a bulging time ruffle," she says. Often, these feature rural England, architectural landmarks, and obscure landscapes, folded into three-dimensional geometric patterns.
San Francisco-based collage artist Travis Bedel aka Bedelgeuse creates astounding anatomical collages that splice together bones, tendons, and organs with flora and fauna. His collage work, mostly a hybrid of analog and digital techniques, takes on a surrealist quality as human anatomy seamlessly intertwines with crystals, flowers, and feathers. Deeply moved by the mysteries and potentialities of the human body, Bedelgeuse’s work revels in the relationship between humanity and nature.
David Krovblit’s pop surrealist collages explore consumerism, sexuality, and other social themes. His "Porthole" series, in particular, juxtaposes retro exploration gear, floral arrangements, and Western iconography. His work is part of the current collage group show “Mèlange” at Arch Enemy Arts, running until Aug. 25.
Douglas Hale multiplies, extends, and flips imagery to create kaleidoscopic and surrealist pictures. With his mind-bending configurations, it is no wonder he has been commissioned by Tessa Rose Jackson, Imagine Dragons, and Flyleaf to illustrate albums and merchandise. It is clear Hale has an interest in music, as many of his collages feature musicians like FKA Twigs and Erykah Badu. In these portraits, Hale adorns the singers with heavily ornate jewels and gold. Sparkle features prominently in Hale's collages, including those of ancient Greek portrait busts puking gold. These, like many of Hale's pictures, are set against rainbow backdrops and imbue his images with a dream-like 80s sentiment.
