Sabra Embury's collages hover in the balance between past and present; between the natural and the man-made. Like the pages of the 1960s LIFE Magazines from which the images come, their saturated colors are appealing and familiar. At first glance charmingly anachronistic, these deftly re-composed scenes pose subtle questions of domesticity, technology, and our relationship to the natural world.
