wow — look at this gorgeous collage and embroidered artwork here from maine artist shannon rankin, aka etsy seller selflesh. shannon sees maps as biological networks, time lines and communication methods. she creates her original and limited edition works using this ephemera, thread, paint and more.

shannon_rankin_hand_collage

shannon_rankin_body_collage

shannon_rankin_head_collage

shannon_rankin_exchange_collage

these pieces are stunning, precise and very reasonably priced (collection $3 – $150). i especially love the watery lower torso and legs in the body collage.

purchase these pieces and see more sampling at her etsy shop. stop by her flickr stream and blog too!
