Alexis Anne Mackenzie crafts amazing collages out of illustrations from botanical and anatomical text books. Some of her work is just free form imagery, but my favorite pieces are the ones that spell out sometimes hard to decipher Jenny Holzer style truisms out of blades of grass and flower stems and muscle tissue.
Her latest exhibit, All the Colors of the Dark, will be open until May 22nd at ebersmoore in Chicago. If you live out that way, be sure to get over there and check it out!
I've posted some of Alexis's work under the cut here, but have resized it so that it loads a little quicker. If you want to check out larger, more detailed versions, you can head over to her webpage.
