Sierra Severson is an analog collage artist from coastal California now based in Chicago. In a world of media saturation, Sierra finds it therapeutic to be able to manipulate and create something entirely new from the wealth of images that already exist. Analog collage began as a therapy practice, a respite from screens and technology, as well an appreciation for the preciousness of print media from the past. Her work is informed by her previous life as a social worker, and inspired by her ongoing love affair with music and film. She creates works involving architecture, nature, the human condition, and the ongoing struggle for women’s sovereignty. She strives to inspire introspection and create surreal moments of joy and dark comedy while dealing with heavy subjects. She has shown her collage work in Hungary, Bulgaria, England, and Seattle, Washington.
