This work is not for the faint of heart. Our inspiration honors the power of women, the weird and surreal, and this show will take you to fantasies unknown. Our work is a celebration of mixed media, showcasing exquisite cut paper collage and illustrations incorporating delicate watercolors, bold ink lines, and vibrant subjects.
About the artists:
Mavis Martini's "modtage"/collage work is inspired by the aesthetics of the "mad Men" aera of advertising, notable the optimism and anticipatio nfor the future as refleected in twhat seems today as an irrational-even surreal-exuberance. She frequently juxtaposes the manufactured images from advertising with those of the natureal world.
Mavis currently maintains a career as a set decoration/props buyer in the film industry and anticipates expanding her modtage avocation into decor items. Mavis can be found on Instagram, Facebook, or by phone and email.
Angela Fernot is a Wilmington, NC based artist and the creator of the anthology comic book series, Tales of Cape Fear. She works in many mediums, primarily concentrating on ink, watercolor, and marker. For her, creating artwork is like navigating a conflict–there is potential for heartbreak and for harmony. Angela is passionate about mentorship and building community with her peers, and she is dedicated to working with young artists to foster their growth and confidence.
