These collages combine vintage photos with a carefully snipped mishmash of paper and fabrics.

Here’s something we all should know: it’s the simplest ideas that are often the best. That’s definitely the case with Nicola Kloosterman’s collage artworks, anyway, which combine vintage photos with a carefully snipped mishmash of paper and fabrics.

Each piece begins the same way: with a single image. She then slices, layers, strips back and arranges until “a new visual narrative emerges”. The tales we see in these latest works are a touch on the creepy side – and we sure do like them a lot. Head over to Nicola’s website if you fancy witnessing more of her crafty magic.
