Shawn Marie Hardy

Collage-a-Dada is a project born in the imagination of mixed-media artist, Shawn Marie Hardy. Shawn Marie dissects long forgotten pages from antique and mid-century books and magazines, and re-assemble the contents to create montages reminiscent of old “B” movie stills. The real and logical are reanimated into something more tantalizing and sometimes disturbing. This blend of random images and spontaneous placement is a marriage that combines beauty, ugliness, humor, and disquiet. The result is a portfolio of images that invites the viewer on a phantasmic journey to where the macabre and vagary are commonplace.

Shawn Marie has been a lifelong artist and has exhibited her work in the U.S. and New Zealand.
