Slicing It Up with @bedelgeuse

To see more collages, follow @bedelgeuse on Instagram.

“When I cut paper there is a release of tension, like the object I’m cutting out is confined in the paper and I am releasing it,” explains New York-based paper collage artist Travis Baker (@bedelgeuse).

Travis never planned to become an artist but when he came across anatomical and botanical illustrations in 2009, he naturally started cutting and pasting. “Since these illustrations were done around the same time period, they had a similar aesthetic. My mind instantly came to the idea to create collages from it.” Over the years Travis has built up a large image library which he adds to over time, sourcing illustrations in old science and medical books. “My inspiration is the energy that exists between human and nature,” he says. “So much emotion is expressed by using anatomical imagery.”
