Artist Obsession: Elizabeth Amento

Artist Obsession, Contemporary Women Artists, Mixed Media

I’m really into collage and mixed media art. It’s hands down my favorite category. Is it indecisive that my favorite artistic medium is mixed media? Probably. Anyway, Elizabeth Amento is doing some really cool stuff with found images. She creates these crazy swirls of color that almost become characters in surreal domestic scenes. The whole thing is set against a stark white background which subverts any of the original image composition. A restrained color palate, beautiful black and white photos, and a sparse canvas, all expertly arranged. I love these.Elizabeth Amento

Check out the rest in her website archives. Plus, she is currently featured in a Frank Juarez Gallery Exhibition, “Art of Collage,” which looks absolutely incredible.
