Beautiful collage work...Li-Kim Chuah.

It's been a while since I posted about collage work and today there were two amazing collage artists who contacted FP. Li-Kim Chuah is a photographer and collage artist based in Melbourne, Australia. Sweet and vintagey with a little bit of punk thrown in there, please have a look at her work housed on flickr. A little bio from Li-Kim:

As a photographer trapped indoors during a grey Melbourne winter I have recently discovered collage. Collage is a great way for me to be creative, finally using all the kitsch books I have collected from Op Shops over the years. I love working with bold garish colour, grotesque 80s food and bad fashion.

Call for Submissions....

FP is always open to submissions from female artists....There will be some new developments and opportunities happening with FP exposure soon and I would really like to put it out there that we are looking for artists to feature! Submit to info@femalepersuasion.net and link to the twitter feed at http://www.twitter.com/femalep.

Additionally, if you have been a past featured artist, whether in the blog or as a former girlcrush, please continue to send your updates and current exhibition schedules so we can stay in the know!
Thank you!

Amy Kligman.

The visual innocent symbolism of little girls and flowers are tainted with oil slicks and slightly warped nightmares in Amy Kligman's "Thoughts Before Sleeping" collection.

Amy's work is a psychological study, observing people and patterns in their nature; their dreams, their mistakes. Themes include social anxiety and awkwardness, strength found in strange places, and the mundane details that become the background for all of life's psychodramas.
