Vanessa Vargas

Vanessa Vargas, a self-taught analog collage and mixed media artist explores her aesthetic with the use of color, texture, and a deep curiosity of various surfaces as a canvas for her pieces. She blends precise cutting and loose paper tearing techniques to build layers of textured paper elevated from the surface or extending off. Meshing those elements along with mixed media of found, re-purposed, or appropriated objects enhance and create a sense of fluid movement and energy throughout her artwork.

The work Vanessa is exhibiting at FUTRA presents SUPER FUTURE uses iconic images to fuse retro and future concepts creating an evolving and fresh vision of where the original artist left off.
