Betty's bio: Betty is an analogue collage artist and licensed image reviver from Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
Using just scissors and glue, she rescues people and animals from vintage magazines and offers them a second chance in life. In her collages, she captures a snapshot from their adventures, uniting the mundane with the mysterious, the bygone with the boundless.
My work is an examination of the boundaries of realism and surrealism, an exploration of possible worlds. I take everyday images from old magazines and re-appropriate them in a way that is surprising, funny or gives food for thought. Rearranging these images is a way of questioning our attitude towards reality, our desires, fears and subconscious.
