Adrienne Heloise is a cut paper collage artist whose work explores intimacy, gender and power that references the imagery from early Americana, battle scenes, and aristocratic hunting. She creates her work using interior patterns of security envelopes to create figures and symbols based on romanticized battle scenes and medieval crests. Utilitarian envelopes commonly used to protect personal information are reused to represent ideals of militaristic protection while also implying hidden desire. Heloise employs gushing patterns to depict the fantasy of the ultimate release gained through violent struggle.
