Josie Lewis doesn’t read fashion magazines. She turns them upside down and flips quickly through, on the hunt for color and texture. When she finds something she likes – an eye, a fishnet stocking, a vibrant hue – she pulls the same page from the nine other copies of the magazine she bought and cuts a stack of the same image. These pieces build her “hypercollages,” 3-dimensional worlds trapped in layer upon layer of resin, inviting the viewer ever closer.
