The strange and dark visual universe of Les Brûmes

A presentation

Hello folks. Simon here. Today, I want to introduce you to the visual world of Flickr member Les Brûmes (The Mists in English). I came across her work via some inspiration post on Abduzeedo or another blog out there a while ago, and haven’t stopped following it since then. I invite her to add her work to the Go Media Flickr pool, which she does regularly.

Linda is a visual artist from Quebec, Canada, born in 1965. I don’t think I’ll be able to let you know more, for the only reason that I don’t know more. She politely declined my interview request, explaining that it was pretty hard for her to put words on her own work.

The reason why I wanted to share her work with you is quite simple: it’s beautiful. She mostly work using the collage technique: assembling bits and pieces of images, text and other elements to create often dark and mesmerizing works of art. Each of her pieces has various layers of meaning.

Alongside her photography work, that I’ll showcase some examples as well, she managed to build a coherent yet extremely varied body of work.

Her photographs are really poetic, giving a new and almost dream-like dimension to the environment of day to day life. It seems to me there are other underlying themes in her work, such as death, time that passes and can’t be recovered, aging…

    Excellent find. While a lot of people try to capture motion, her photography seem to do the opposite- having an almost eerie stillness to it. Chilling the more you look at it.
