Paula Braconnot’s Monochromatic Collages

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Paula Braconnot culls pieces of vintage illustrations to create monochromatic digital collages that depart from their source materials. Religious icons are mingled with textbook anatomy drawings and Victorian-era technological advents. In keeping her work monochromatic, Braconnot endows it with a comic book-like feel despite the often realistically-rendered subject matter. Layers of imagery are piled on in a baroque fashion, bombarding the eyes with black and white shapes that the viewer must slowly discern. The artist is based in Paris and has exhibited throughout Europe and Brazil.
