Art: Alexis Mackenzie

I'm surprised I haven't posted something about San Francisco-based artist Alexis Mackenzie yet, but better now then never! Ever since I moved to the City, i've been a fan of her work that has been exhibited at local galleries like Park Life and Whitewalls. I love her aesthetic and her perfect balance between the beautiful and the bizarre, obviously a running theme with the art I am drawn to! Her delicate collages, although her end result is much more refined than a typical hodge-podge collage, are created through detailed cut outs from old books she's collected over the years and then combined to create something much more interesting and transcendent than what the images where originally intended to depict.
