Vintage collage artist Eugenia Loli uses photography scanned from vintage magazines and science publications to create bizarre visual narratives, now available at Guy Hepner. The exclusive limited edition prints draw themes and inspirations from mysticism, the unknown of the universe, pop culture, societal and political problems, and human behavior.
Originally from Greece, Loli previously worked as a nurse, a computer programmer, and as a technology journalist, but has only recently decided to pursue a budding passion for collage work with publications in numerous magazines since 2013. Since then, Loli’s work mirrors this defiant, artistic stance, pairing dreamlike, outlandish imagery with humorous titles. Her subject matters draw a sweeping scope of influence, from ‘pop,’ through dada, modern illustrations, and traditional surrealism creating a body composite images whose subject matter includes bomber jets dropping hard candies, and countrysides riddled with impossibly-large fungi.
Typical of Eugenia Loli artwork, such as Gaia, Loli begins her collages with a single ‘base image,’ and a general thematic idea. She then overlaps images and themes until, finally, after layers and layers of work, her collages begin to take shape. Confesses the artist, “Most of the time, I try to ‘say’ something important via my art, I usually do this via presenting a “narrative” scene in my collages, like there’s something bigger going on than what’s merely depicted. But other times its just about doodling.” In this case, the legendary Greek Goddess, Gaia is brought to life. She was the great mother of all; creator and giver of birth to the Earth, Galaxy and all the Universe.
It is this cheerful attitude that allows her collages maintain a certain lightness of form, an attribute so commonly unachievable when it comes to the level of metaphor that she brings into her images. By imbuing a flexibility and playfulness to her approach, process, and products, Eugenia Loli’s collages are at once provocative, refreshing, and often simply and blissfully silly.
