Alexis Anne Mackenzie’s handcut collages of found images and pages from vintage books in her latest body of work. By taking pictures like scenic backdrops and splitting them with photos of women and other figures, Mackenzie creates stirring, moody works on paper. The work can be at once empowering and seemingly treacherous for those depicted. Works like "Closer to the Sun," above, combine like objects, creates a synthesis between the beauty of flight and womanhood. The body of work is part of the show "Never Odd or Even" at Eleanor Harwood Gallery in San Francisco.
