Lola’s Glue

Take Liz Taylor, for instance, and cut her face into sharp triangles starting from the tip of her nose, and place the shreds to mimic a broken centrifugal kaleidoscope so she can look like a spirit staring at you from behind the bathroom’s glass door of a space ship, and still you are far from imagining Lola Duprè’s collage art. Her surreal, hypnotic images are a mix of  Saul Steinberg, Dadaism, Circus Freaks and baby drawings, seen after a few shots of good whisky. In two words: absolutely brilliant. The French Algerian artist and illustrator, who creates her figures entirely by hand with paper, scissors and glue, makes probably use of the sticky substance to paste your eyes to her pictures, too. Lola is now based near Avignon in the south of France. She just moved from Glasgow where she had been working for Chateau and Chalet studios. Her production has been featured on Flaunt, Naked Eye and Adbusters magazines, to mention a few, but her path has just begun. And we wish her good luck.
