Jayne Surrena: East Meets West

Posted on

Philadelphia-based mixed media artist and americana connoisseur Jayne Surrena is back with her latest round of awesome mixed media collages. We love her work. Each collage tells a story. Individually the elements make us feel nostalgic as, because they’re taken directly from old magazines, they feel old and make us think of all the things we personally associate with days of yore. Yet, her purpose for placing the elements together is both to make us feel uncomfortable and also to thumb her nose at society in a subtle way. Based on the numerous accolades she’s received we’re not the only ones who think she’s doing a fantastic job. Take a look at some of Jayne’s work below.
