Beth Hoeckel is an artist from Baltimore and holds a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. In her collages she creates richly colourful images by hunting down vintage publications from the 40s – 70s in second-hand book stores. The effect is something oddly haunting and often raising an air of mystery. Beth also paints, draws and takes photographs, has appeared in magazines including Dazed and Confused and in numerous group exhibitions in the US and Europe. She usually works on several projects at a time and her latest works include a series of mixed media collage/drawings called “Sleight”, and a series of painting/collages on found book covers called “Undercover”, and new pieces incorporating painting and collage.
