Loooooove! These are the hand-cut collages of New York / Atlanta artist Christa David. I’ve been following her for awhile, and ooooh, these latest pieces made up of… is that skirt?… are so great. The compositions, color choices, and the stories they stir up:

“In my artwork, context, specifically story, is essential. Stories, like currency, are circulated. Using materials sourced from historical archives, vintage and contemporary magazines and newspapers, I cut and compose mostly intimate-sized narrative collages that describe my thoughts about the stories I’ve heard and told about myself and others.”

Yep, once again, I’m gonna need my scissors and every old magazine I can find. Happy Wednesday.

ps. Christa’s work is available in her shop.
