Memphis Michell's by Kylea Borges

Memphis Michell's, 2013

Kylea Borges

The bizarre juxtaposition of the colorful paper squiggles, the stalactite cave, and desert scenes give this work its charm and handmade whimsy. This work is collaged from found material that has been hand cut and assembled. It was inspired by a 1980s-style developed by the Memphis Group in Milan, whose work was characterized by colorful palettes and asymmetrical shapes, with allusions to exotic forms.
