Airborne | Collages

Inspired by the space age aesthetic, this series of collages draws from the 20th century’s fascination with space travel and its colourful manifestations.

The visual cues are derived from a stamp collection built largeley between the 1960s and 90s. Not only does the collection reflect vast swaths of 20th century events and obsessions, it also highlights the graphic trends that accompanied each respective era.
