Vahge

   Vahge生長於巴地摩爾,於2007搬至布魯克林居住,過著不停泡咖啡、不停創作的生活。從小內向的她,朋友不多,喜歡和玩偶作朋友,喜歡活在自己的夢裡。因為太喜歡玩偶的擬真性、多樣性、塑造性,她曾親手蓋造了三層樓、有25個房間的芭比屋。

Vahge的創作試圖以拼貼的方式組織出一種維多利亞式的狂想與浪漫,以及從中提取的一種令人不安的現實性。深受德國表現主義影響,作品中有著夢境般的殘酷,寫實方式的迷幻,Vahge怪異卻又優雅的風格,已在各地蔓延。



    Vahge was born in the quiet suburbs just south of Baltimore, where her neighbors had perfectly kept lawns and watchful eyes.  An isolated child with few friends, she withdrew to her imagination for entertainment and solace. Her early years were spent befriending muppets, making up stories, and slowly constructing a three-storied, twenty-five roomed Barbie house. She began making collages one summer during a bout of restless obsession in the company of a philosophical feline and a consortium of colorful characters. 
Vahge's collages contrast the whimsical and romantic with unsettling aspects of reality.  There is also often a hint of humor in her work.  She incorporates elements of dreams, literature, music, theater, and classic portraiture, and draws heavily from the rich imagery of German Expressionism and Victorian culture. Usually crafted on a small scale, her work is highly detailed, using layers of paper to construct characters and scenes with precise proportion and depth.  She focuses mainly on female characters, placing them center stage and exposing their inner turmoils and unique beauty.  In all her work, whether it be a sociopathic conjoined twin, a tragic clown, an embellished lady-in-waiting, or a chaste mistress, Vahge celebrates oddity with elegance."
