As you can tell, I used a single White Moth Orchid as the subject for the piece, (perfect for the start of Spring!) I love how the soft and delicate curves of the orchid pair well with the female face. Orchid’s have been known to be symbolic of many female traits, such as fertility and beauty. When combining the female and the orchid together, I believe it results in an eerily strange and beautiful hybrid of the two.

Unlike most of my other collages, “Allure” was fairly simple to construct because I only used 6 individual cut-out pieces total. To view a detailed shot of how each piece is layered onto the image, click on the image below.

Alexandra Bellissimo offers a banquet of delights – a series of self-portraits into which she uses collages elements of nature – shrubs, bushes, trees, tree roots, birds to create fascinating human + nature images that have you staring.
I have never been a great fan of collages, because they are not often done well.
But in Alexandra’s work, the effect is awesome – and she’s almost converted me. I wouldn’t mind having some of her work on my walls. And, because of her, I might actually seek out other collage artists in the future.
She was born and raised in the Los Angeles area and attended the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. where she received her BFA in photography. Her body of work strongly revolves around the theory of “making” pictures instead of simply, “taking” pictures. She executes her visual intentions through incorporating traditional collaging techniques, as well as digital manipulation to each surreal photograph. As she says on her website she “… has always been motivated towards the creation of unique imagery”.
She is rather new on the scene having graduated relatively recently – here’s a video of her graduation on Vimeo but she already shows a maturity of concept, wit and aesthetics making her one to watch.

Фотохудожница из Лос-Анджелеса Александра Беллиссимо (Alexandra Bellissimo) не ограничивается обычными черно-белыми снимками. Ее фотоколлажи рассказывают о странных созданиях – полулюдях-полудеревьях и напоминают о том, что все мы связаны с природой: просто у кого-то ветер в голове, а у кого-то – лес. Впрочем, дело не только в природе. Можно сказать, что персонажи Александры Беллиссимо думают по-разному. Получеловек получеловеку рознь. Чьи-то суждения растут из одного корня, разветвляясь и срастаясь, а у кого-то каждая мысль свободна, как птица: вылетит – не поймаешь.

Alexandra Bellissimo es una artista de los Angeles, California, que siempre ha sentido motivación por la creación de imágenes “únicas”. Con gran inclinación hacia la fotografía conceptual, a menudo incorpora técnicas como la del collage y la manipulación digital para crear fotografías completamente surrealistas. En la serie que os presentamos llamada Simulations Bellissimo combina desnudos humanos con la naturaleza, haciendo que extensiones del cuerpo se conviertan, entre otras cosas, en árboles, raíces y troncos. Parece que la intención no es otra que la de provocar emociones y sentimientos al yuxtaponer dos temas tan opuestos y fundirlos en una sola imagen, creando de esta manera una nueva perspectiva acerca de la relación entre las personas y la naturaleza.
