Lola Dupré and scissors

on

Lola Dupré (1982), collage artist.

Working exclusively with paper and scissors, her work references both the Dada aesthetic of the early 20th Century and the digital manipulations of the present day. Since 2000 has lived and worked in Scotland, Switzerland, France, Portugal, Spain and now Ireland. Lola is currently working on upcoming exhibition and editorial projects.

Lola Dupre’s surreal collages bend and expand the traditional view of both object and human form. With a wide focus of subject matter it seems as if no human or animal can escape Dupré’s focus, her subjects ranging from famous presidents and celebrities to giraffes and hound dogs.

Each work includes some sort of distortion to the original image, either by the artist multiplying limbs or elongating torsos and faces into unnatural poses. Although the work appears digitally manipulated, the collage artist and illustrator uses paper and scissors as her medium, utilizing thousands of paper paper shards to produce her funhouse-like imagery.
