Insta-Peep-O-Gram: Chaos Collage
What happens when a Boston University B.F.A. graduate/ art teacher signs up on Instagram? Welcome to the digital life of Caris Reid. Though the award-winning artist specializes in painting, on Instagram you’ll find a host of fascinating collages, completed not by Reid herself but by her students (Reid teaches a collage class utilizing vintage imagery, some of which can be seen here). Reid’s talented students blend roses, mountains, and chunks of meat into twisted landscapes… and that’s just the beginning.
