Although these collages may look like locker-art from Richard Linklater’s Dazed & Confused or perhaps illicit clippings pilfered from 1970s suburban teenage girls diaries, they’re not. They are, however, heavily inspired by all of the above, and by anything remotely psychedelic, dreamy, pubescent, or retro. Their creator, Minna Gilligan, is a regular contributor to the gradually world-dominating Rookie Magazine: brainchild of pubescent truth-speaker and prodigy, Tavi Gevinson.
The do-good, honest vibes that emanate from the pages of Rookie are succinctly captured in Minna’s collages which, judging from her blog (a trippy cornucopia of psychedelic imagery from the days of yore) are promoting exactly what Rookie is about: You’re a girl, you’re passionate about things, shout about it. See more of her work and other kindred spirits on “The Ardorous” – a fantastic collection of contemporary female photography and artwork curated by Rookie’s Petra Collins.
