Artwork hopefully evokes a feeling out of those viewing it, and Cherelle Sappleton's mixed media collages demand attention and emotion.

Sappleton deconstructs the human body in a scary, yet beautiful way. There is something inherently horrifying about seeing a hand come out of a face, or a leg where a neck should be. However, there is also a beautiful quality to these collages. They are tastefully done, and made to not be gory.

A new variation on the human form is a creative way to draw attention to your work. The mixed media aspect also adds interest to the piece; parts are chopped out of magazines, ads and portraits all to create a truly individual work of art. Sappleton's mixed media collages are images that won't soon be forgotten.
