About Raven Schlossberg
To create her mixed-media collages, Raven Schlossberg obsessively pores through old publications from around the world—everything from children’s books to ladies’ homemaking magazines to porno magazines with reader-submitted photos—in search of source material. She transforms the images she finds into collaged landscapes that combine familiar elements into entirely imagined worlds. Layers of found images, printed paper, and drawings are superimposed with ghostly images floating over one another like double-exposed photos or alternate planes of reality. Using these kitschy cultural artifacts from the recent past she explores such timeless concepts as sexuality, love, loss, discovery, and devotion.
American, b. 1973, Paradise, California, based in California & New York
