I’ve always had a thing for collages… even the ones my friends made for me in high school from cut up Seventeen magazines. Lately I’ve been looking for (and finding) some really, really good collage art online. Baltimore-based artist Beth Hoeckel has been my biggest discovery — she has a large body of work on her website and all of it’s rad. It was really hard to narrow down what I wanted to share here. I love the pieces from a series she did called “gazing”. They feel sort of surreal and post-apocalyptic to me. And yet there’s an odd beauty and almost peaceful quality to them as well. What do you think?
If you like Beth’s art, check out her online shop. She’s got several very reasonably priced prints available.
*All pieces by Beth Hoeckel, listed from top to bottom: 1. Sunbathing, 2. Glacial, 3. Moonrise, 4. April Showers, 5. Peachy, 6. Slumber, 7. Vacation, 8. Slick
