Paradoxical Mash-Ups

London-based artist Nancy Fout has put together a collection of odd, paradoxical mash-ups of two totally unrelated objects. Her creations are often surreal and “completely unexpected”—it brings humor and allows viewers to derive new meanings from these familiar objects. For instance, she had put together a balloon and cactus thorns, and hidden an egg within an egg.
