Mixed media: Laura McKellar

Don’t you just love this mixed media portrait? I love how you can completely change the atmosphere of a photo by adding an illustration and different colours. I like the mixture of real and fantasy. Our very existence is real and¬†phantasmagorical at the same time. We all life and breathe and walk this earth while our heads and hearts are filled with imaginary things, hopes, dreams and nightmares. My ex-boyfriend once asked me why I believed there was something more then just this life. I said I couldn’t believe our thoughts, our inner feelings, our unspoken words and everything we keep inside would just be biology. I still don’t believe that.¬†This beautiful work is by the talented Australian¬†Laura McKellar. I love the bird crown this sixties woman is wearing. I would love to wear a bird all day!
