OK, enough with the shiny happy pastels for today -- bring on the dark and deliciously twisted.
This new series of mixed-media collages called The Tree Sisters, from Illinois artist Sarah Ogren, makes me shudder in the most exquisite way. (Honestly, I would fill my house with this stuff, but I think it would scare the children.)
The original assemblages were created from vintage book pages, antique photos and other found images, and Ogren's own drawings on 5-by-7-inch antiqued wood plaques. Each is signed, dated, and ready to hang. Just $28 apiece, people.
