Michelle Concetta Parchini
Fort Worth, Texas, USA


I utilize my own photography as well as found and digital imagery to create collages that make unexpected connections between line, form, space, and color. I explore these relationships and aim to both engage the viewer in the spontaneous process of finding meaning within the visual landscape and arouse a touch of mystery. This synergy I ultimately desire to achieve is the driving force behind why I create. My work touches upon themes of spirituality, magic and conjuring, the exploration of the human psyche, confession, art as therapy, and the surreal.


Michelle Concetta Parchini, aka /DRI:M/ARTZ, is an artist from the United States currently based in Saudi Arabia. Prone to escapism from an early age, she finds comfort in the one thing that grounds her to the Real, creating art and shaping her world to fulfill her aesthetic yearnings. Self-taught, her talents cover a broad spectrum of the Arts, but of late contemporary collage has come front and center, refueling her passion for the medium. Her analogue and digital collages as well as her mixed-media photography have been featured in gallery showings, art publications and collectives in the US and internationally.

She is the founder of /DRI:M/SPACE, an art magazine dedicated to elevating contemporary collage and the artists working in the medium.
