Jason LaFerrera Art

I have recently stumbled across the collage animal images of Jason LaFerrera. Each image is constructed digitally from maps and cartographic materials, considering the natural habitats of the animals and the relationships between these environments and regions. I really enjoy the layered nature of this work, although I prefer a more tactile texture of physical collage rather than digital works like this. The series of images seem to question the concept of boundaries, be it the animal’s territory, the ways in which humans create boundaries between themselves and nature or the division of land or counties, together with the impact these have on the natural world.
