Participating artist Alissa Polan. Alissa has described her artistic journey as working with collage, photography and sculpture “to explore society’s fetishistic relationships with nature and its proclivity to equate nature with consumption, leisure and capital.” Alissa’s work does not disappoint. For Aperture, Alissa used vintage postcards that she collages with high-end luxury goods, “the ones that state for pricing information please call, “laughed Alissa. “I am working with tongue in cheek humor with an element of sinister. The titles are indicative of that jolt I am trying to create.”
