Past Inside the Present — Art by Sarah McDonald

 
Created by hand, these collages explore the ideas of passing time and nostalgia. The people in the collages are cut from various books on tourism. Relocated from family snapshots and tourist brochures, I create a less representational and more existential destination for them. By isolating the figures and placing them into unfamiliar environments, they become more mysterious and seemingly introspective.
