If you’re looking to escape reality for a moment, there’s no need to pick up any mind altering substances. Simply take a peek at Eugenia Loli’s surreal collages for a mind-bending adventure into another dimension. The California-based artist, illustrator and filmmaker specifically chose her poppy, whimsical subject matter over something more serious to ensure viewers got that needed escape they’re looking for.
Using images cut from donated magazine pages, Loli begins with a base image and builds from there. Whether it’s a field of poppies, the planet Saturn or a women smoking a cigarette, these main images compel a story to follow in their wake. In one a particularly surreal collage, a black-and-white group of museum goers are presented with colorful 3D plant life that has a fantastical, otherworldly vibe to it. [h/t faithistorment.com]
