Feminine Feminism

Hello and welcome to my shop! Here you will find a selection of high quality prints of my original artwork.
I made collage cutting vintage fashion illustration from Italian midcentury magazines, adding inspirational positive quotes, with a touch of humor & a play on words.

    I'm a collage artist. I create my Collage cutting images of models from vintage fashion magazines of Fifties, and adding optimistic messages: I love my life! The journalist Francesca Reboli described my work on VOGUE Italy in this way: “(Women of the 1950s) inspire the work of Maria Grazia Preda, an artist who invented a genre: the collage vintage. With her "dancing" scissors she cuts out images, words, photographs from vintage women and then "mount" them, recontextualized, in collages. So photos of perfect bon ton young ladies, always smiling and confident, are combined with contemporary claims, such as "The girl who was NOT looking for a husband. New in Italy". The result is mildly ironic, delicately pungent and tinged with sweet and indulgent nostalgia. Certainly not as we were - repressed, not yet free - but for that classic allure that today, from the height of our independence, we can claim among the fundamentals of style. Costume, fashion, advertising, collective obsessions: Maria Grazia Preda takes us to a world that no longer exists, updating it with her humor, combining fun and criticism with great class. " Francesca Reboli, Vogue Italy
