Alis La Luna


From the artist:

“my name is elis (also known as alis la luna). i was born and lived most of my life in kyiv, ukraine, except for five years of my life, which I spent in england studying photography at university for the creative arts.collage art is relatively new media for me, but using this technique makes it easier to show and to transform ideas that are buried in my head. memoryloss submission is a series of deformed/deconstructed portraits. i’ve always had problems with remembering peoples’ faces and their names, especially after a head trauma. so these series are a depiction of how our memory transforms pictures in our head and produces layers of faces and skin parts and things associated with them. portraits become like visual unfinished sculptures.”
