ARTIST OF THE WEEK #12 _ ROCIO MONTOYA

Hypopompic-by-Rocio-Montoya-01-750x499

This series of collages born as an aesthetic experiment that evokes the well known effect
of “sleep paralysis” a state in which anything seems possible and that is sometimes so
real that the memory remains latent in the retina and in the subconscious as a reality.
Under the inspirational influence of surrealism and classical Raphaelite painting,
Hypnopompic reflects on the delicacy of the female figure in synergy with nature, as an ode
to the ephemeral beauty and fragility of human beings. The portraits have been made by
the artist Rocio Montoya and intervened with the technique of handmade collage,
using symbolic elements extracted from old botanical illustrations and various print magazines.
