Soubriquet posted a lovely photograph of a wall of portmanteaux for me today HERE. I loved the image so much, I went to steal it - but it wouldn't embiggen for me. So, naturally I did an image search on google and FOUND THESE!! Apparently these are actual room installations of artist Gail Rieke's studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico. One day I am going to take Soubriquet to Santa Fe. He will love the landscape, the architecture, some of the art .... and probably dryly comment on the New Age spiritualism of the town. It once was a very lovely (and relatively inexpensive) place long long ago until Californians began invading the town in droves. And yes, I can say that as I was (for a brief period of lunacy) a Los Angelesian. Ummm ... I've gotten off track a bit here. What I want to share are these interesting 'collage' rooms Gail has created:
|Collage Studio First Room|
|Collage Studio Detail|
|Collage Studio Second Room|
Gail's portfolio is quite varied and includes collage, assemblage, journals, photographs and digital prints. Check out her website: Gail Rieke Collage Studios.
