The Age of Collage: Eugenia Loli’s Surreal Time Shifts

Maker

Eugenia Loli takes pictures from 20th Century magazines and science publications and reinvents them into something new, exuberant, witty and joyous. The Sphinx (Aka “Cosmic Gymnophoria”) is a composite mix of a 1950s postcard from Terrace Motel, Tucson, AZ, a picture of The Great Orion Nebula, the pyramids of Giza and a mid-Century pinup. Loli, a Greek-born artist born in Greece now living in California, aims to create a narrative. “Sometimes the scene is witty or sarcastic, some times it’s horrific with a sense of danger or urgency, some times it’s chill,” she tells us. “I leave it to the viewer’s imagination to fill-in the blanks of the story.”
