Corinne Geertsen

Arizona based artist Corinne Geertsen creates surreal collages from her growing library of over 20,000 images that consists of her own photographs, old family photos, scans of all sorts of  everyday objects and hand-drawn and painted images. The combination of photography, photoshop and her imagination results into striking, whimsical and quirky images.

"The ideas come to me very gradually and slowly as I am assembling the pictures. Then I add and subtract objects, characters, lighting, shadows and textures to support and develop them. I am attracted to digital art because it is wide open. By combining disparate elements, you can call up a wide range of emotions, experiences and moods. Everyone sees something different in my pictures and (is) attracted to different things about them. I try to make my pictures evocative and quirky."

I hope you enjoyed your week here with me.  I'll see you back on Monday with more owl-some posts.
