Blue Go-Go is a series of twelve large-format, archival pigment prints. The prints were created from original, hand cut collages.
The imagery, cut from vintage science and nature encyclopedias, is at once recognizable, and evokes a sense of nostalgia; yet draws the viewer deeper into a deliberately frenetic space.
Anne Lemanski is a full time studio artist residing in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. Previous to the move to North Carolina, Lemanski’s roots stem from Detroit and Chicago.
