Eugenia Loli‘s collages are a cosmic clash of sci – fi and vintage photos all juxtaposed to create new narratives that speak about injustice, social inequality and economic catastrophe, her work clearly inspired by sexual politics and the role of women in society. Before she turned to art Loli worked in the technology sector – in areas as diverse as databasing, artificial Intelligence and user interfaces – and this training has obviously influenced her creative process as every collage is digitally manipulated to be both precise yet look roughly hewn. She cites her creative influences as Magritte, Julien Pacaud, Banksy and Cur3es. About her recurring themes she has this to say:
So far I have had a number of feminine/sexual themes, but that’s only temporary. Socio-political issues of today and the near future is where I ultimately want to go. For example, I want to explore and speak out about things like the fall of freedom in the Western world in the last few years, the failures of copyright & patent laws, corporate dominance over our politicians, as well as explore futuristic issues, like sexual relationships with androids, genetic manipulation etc. I’m only at the beginning of what I’d like to say.
