I came across Laurie Frick's work on Pinterest and thought at first it was fabric. It's paper collage and I love it. It's very patchwork-like in a bold way. Very inspiring!
From the artist: "I use pattern, words and color to replicate the feel of neurons firing
in the brain. I imagine the brain breaks down visual time into bits
where the novel and odd are as essential to recollection as the
intensely emotional. Vaguely familiar cut-up materials stand-in for
everything you stumble across in a day, the amount you see and forget
and the things you give only partial-attention. How much does the brain
take in every day, every logo and advertisement online, every storefront
you pass by, the packaging along every aisle in the grocery store, every
ad on television. What does the mind retain?"
