From The New Old World

Artist's Statement

My ongoing collage narrative The New Old World (aka The NOW) consists of digital and analog collages that alternative between functioning as a form of personal autobiography, as well as providing broader commentary on contemporary politics and society. I publish my daily collage diary on Instagram @e_m_m_a_a_n_n_a
