"From These Hills" — Anne Armentrout
June 27, 2007Anne Armentrout [Bristol, Va.] makes exquisite Dali-esque photo collages of images taken from magazines; carefully composed in terms of form and color, they juxtapose female fashion plates, religious images, and items of luxury and opulence to comment on the relationship between vanity, spirituality, and consumption in modern society.
The artist carefully selects images.
The images are trimmed.
Each form placed on her canvas becomes part of each other.
The artist looks over finished works.
