Ambrosine Allen

Compendium to the New World

Encountering Ambrosine’s work you are first met with an epic vision. Upon closer inspection the medium reveals itself, and the illusionary world created entirely from the artist’s imagination is made all the more astounding. Taking pages from The Encyclopedia Britannica and other early 20 Century books and cutting them into tiny pieces, the collage is meticulously realized at the point of making, a process that can take many months to complete.
