Animal collages made from real photos.
Wondrous Goose is synonymous with wonder, imagination, and the power of stories. For my collages, I mainly use pictures I’ve taken myself. Animals depict human characteristics, dreams, and idiosyncrasies. The animals I have portrayed during my 20-year career as a photographer, tell their fairy tales in surreal collage art. They live in landscapes that I’ve photographed over the years. Wondrous Goose is named after ‘Aggy, the goose that will one day dare to fly’…..
Jury report Picture This! 2018
Through her use of digital collage to create credible fantasy worlds and add warmth to her characters, Anneke Bloema’s work shows a strong sense of contemporary picture book illustration. Interesting changes in perspective and place will capture the attention of the young reader, from a gosling practicing to fly in a yard to a full-grown goose in mid-air, silhouetted against the moon.
