Incredibly Creepy Collages

San Francisco-based artist Dianne Hoffman creates magnificent mixed media assemblages using recycled and salvaged materials. Each piece is incredibly unique and a bit unsettling. Hoffman's  collection can be viewed on her Flickr page and website. Of her urge to create art, she states:

I have a tendency to personify inanimate objects and feel genuine compassion for those that are damaged or disregarded. I see potential in broken bits and find beauty in rust and erosion. The older an object, the more haunting and alluring its ghost. Collage & assemblage art allows me to indulge these concepts by creating small worlds in a box where tall tales are told, jokes are cracked, emotions stirred, poems imparted and songs are sung.  By using images that replicate the past and objects that authenticate it, my pieces become storytellers, dream interpreters and memory inducers. They are innately lyrical and flicker along to their own silent film.

Today is woman crush wesdesnday so I thought I could share my most recent woman crush, who is this lovely pin upfrom China. You can find her on Instragram (@winny queen) and youtube (Pinupgirl Winny). On her youtube channel she posts some hair and makeup tutorials which are lovely!I think she is absolutely gorgeous and her beauty is very unique. Her classic pin up stule is also amazing! I do not know if she has a blog or anything because it is really hard to find things about her on the internet, but she appears sometimes on my tumblr dashboard.

Eerie antique bisque dolly, eyes in “sleep” position. She reminds me of Alice falling down the rabbit hole.

(I probably found this on eBay, but no longer remember for certain - please contact me if you can add credit info)
