Fascinating typographic collages from artist Alexis Anne Mackenzie. Mackenzie started making collages in a visual journal she kept in high school. She went on to study at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. She now lives and works in San Francisco.

All of my collages are composed by hand, cut from books I've been collecting for years, and painstakingly pieced together as seamlessly as possible. They create themselves through a process beginning with a loose concept, followed by a series of trials and errors, subtle maneuvers, selection/elimination, harmonious unions and happy accidents. It is a meditative process....

My general intent, throughout all my work, is to portray the world as a flawed thing of beauty - a place that shines brightly, but has a dark side to match.
