These Portraits by Veerle Symoens are Compiled from Magazine Clippings

The inspiration for Veerle Symoens' mixed media collage portraits came from her work in journalism and PR. Her visual art started out as a collection of magazine content that caught her eye and eventually, she composed the clippings into entirely new images.

The photomontages combine unrelated magazine cut-outs in a striking way. One portrait is made of the faces of two different women but somehow still looks whole. Another image is of a woman resting against a couch but the artist uses the bodies of three women in completely different stances to make one identifiable figure.

Transforming her talents from her 9 to 5 job gave Symoens the opportunity to create artistic work that would eventually be featured in magazines, appear in art galleries and placed into the hands of paying art aficionados.
