Imaginary Beings: Fantastic Collages by Johanna Goodman
New York-based artist Johanna Goodman combines elements of nature, art, architecture and fashion to create her incredible elongated figures.
“The Catalogue of Imaginary Beings draws its inspiration from a wide spectrum of sources—including magical realism, surrealism and symbolism—and more specifically references such cultural artifacts as talismans, idols, totems and all of the material detritus that surrounds all of us all the time. These characters are composites embodying notions of ‘the warrior,’ vulnerability, industry, the universal and the personal. They reference these identities as they’ve been depicted historically through art, literature and commerce.”Art Illustration Posted on November 27, 2017
