The images you see here were made by 19 year old Jade Phillips, an Alaskan artist who has combined two highly nostalgic and beautiful things: foxes and the printed page. She creates her works on the pages of Russian literature and newsprint, using sharpies and Prismacolor pens to mark-up the text into linear based shapes of the northern animal.
There is something distinctly quiet about these gorgeous works. The un-doctored textural backgrounds, looking almost like snow, give the foxes a stark contrast with their bold red. It’s a look which perfectly communicates a cold, northern winter.[see_also]
Through these works and her other collages, you can’t help but get a sense for this artists deep thoughtfulness. She describes herself as a vegetarian, ukuleleist, activist, believer, dreamer, sleeper, lover, artist. Sounds like someone good to know. You can see more of Phillips’ work on Flickr or her personal Tumblr.
