Freelance artist Marilize Ackermann from Cape Town, now based in Senegal creates collages, mosaics and illustrations. Her work looks at the relation between humans, animals and objects. All her collages are handmade using paper and other material.
“All my collages were made during the past year, while I was working in the field of human rights in the tiny African nation of Burundi. Inspired by the strangeness of daily experiences, I created a number of light, surreal pieces from the few materials that were available. In most of my collages, animals are reflected in humans or objects.”
