These botanical collages by Rocio Montoya transform female subjects with organic elements and motifs. His black and white portraits capture women, whose images are fragmented and layered in a myriad of ways. The artist also experiments with flowers, foliage and other eye-catching elements that he adds to his collages.
Once blended, these opposing motifs create a captivating image. When creating his collage art works, Rocio Montoya references his collection of botanical images, found in old books and fashion magazines. The finished result evokes a vintage and nostalgic feel and blends together different periods in history.
When they aren't referencing different decades, the works fuse together varying artistic mediums and boast an abundance of fragmented and abstract layers.
