art vs. art | erica lawlor schmidt vs. alexis anne mackenzie

before i introduce one of my favourite new series - have you signed up to receive and "send something good?" you have until midnight tonight to join one hundred and fifty other bloggers in this amazing postal project! 

it's time for art vs art! just like the last session of this game, these two artists have created a very similar* body of work. both use the same type of composition, both are influenced by nature, and both sets are done in collage. but there are also some distinct differences in style! erika lawlor schmidt, whom i've written about before - has a very clean cut and whimsical style. whereas alexis anne mackenzie's images are more loose and eerie. the question of the day is...which do you prefer and why??

  1. I prefer erika lawlow schmidt's work more. There's something more magical and imaginative to them which I adore in artwork.

  2. hmm tough one! I think I like alexis anne mackenzie's better.

  3. alexis anne mackenzie reminds of a fairy tale world
