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?"
