I was recently turned on to the work of Mariana Abosolo. I stumbled upon a blog post with a few of her images and a link to a Flickr page

I don’t know anything about her ,but she’s making some incredible work. Her pieces look like antique trading cards, or outsider art cigarette packaging, or flags from a lost continent or tantric drawings made with office supplies. They feel otherworldly and lost in time. Each object looks found rather than made. 

I love how the scale of each piece is difficult to recognize. Sitting with Mariana’s work transports me to another era…and I’m not sure where or when that is. Subtle and raw. I wish I had made it.
