Collages by Rocio Montoya
- Caroline Kurze
Spanish-based photographer, graphic/web designer and editor Rocio Montoya creates surreal collages that speak about the human body in close relation to nature. The female figure and a loss of identity are here conceptual basis. The resulting works are a mixture of graphic elements collected from magazines and vintage botanical illustrations with photographic portraits and old family postcards. With her works Rocio Montoya creates a disturbing and poetic atmospheres alluding to the oneiric world of dreams. As the artist herself says, she delves into the subconscious and sees her artworks like mirages that project a parallel reality through aesthetic experiences.
