Whimsical Fictional Landscape Collages By James Frede

For his latest series ‘Fiction Landscapes‘, artist James Frede created landscape collages by mixing vintage photos he found at flea markets. By adjusting the images according to the edges, the landscape collages inhabit new dimensions – both geographically as well as chronologically.

In his statement, artist says:

“The visual of how well the lands meet and also proceed generates a dialog about how the land beneath our feet related to the land beneath our loved one’s feet possibly thousands of miles away. Furthermore, it can be argued that all of the lands is connected beneath our feet crossing continents and behind where the divisions are not humanly perceivable. One constant line is drawn below us around the globe and back to us, with a center meeting point just under our shoes, in whichever direction you choose to face.”
