Melanie Garcia loves collage. It was during her BFA in Film Production at Concordia University that she began her work in large-format digital collage. After a period of art gestation her work is now settled into primarily analog mixed media collage concerned with the human body, its biological flaws, perfection, representation, distortion and aesthetics.
The once pictorial digital collages have now been distilled to minimal abstract and surreal collages. Disembodied limbs, flesh, and anonymous bodies, attempt to connect to natural landscapes, mythologies and elements.
When not pushing around little pieces of paper Melanie freelances in costume/wardrobe styling and art education in and around Montreal, Canada.
