The new work by Travis Bedel is as visually striking as the anatomical collages that made waves on the Internet earlier this year. Full of intricate details that combine nature with other creatures, they each look like something straight out of a dream. Instead, Travis Bedel uses more tangible sources for his colorful collages including field guides, textbooks and vintage etchings.
While Travis Bedel's artworks can be compared to the creations by Argentinian art director and designer Juan Gatti, there appears to be a darker undertone to his collages. Mainly working under the alias Bedelgeuese, Travis Bedel creates both physical and digital collages that somehow end up transcending the individual botanical, zoological and anatomical imagery he uses.
