Beth Hoeckel’s Collages Pack a Punch

Beth Hoeckel’s collage art demands attention. Full of spunk, the Austin-based multidisciplinary artist and illustrator doesn’t shy away from making a statement. Over the past 5 years, her work has been exhibited around the world and published in many celebrated publications, with clients that include Rookie, Domino, and The New York Times

“I have several different projects going at once, but within each one there is usually an unintentional theme,” shared Hoeckel with Frankie Magazine. “For example- my point of view collage series is about people interacting and reacting to the power of nature as well as getting lost in a daydream.”

“I think a lot of it is about losing touch with reality in a good way”, she said. And indeed, there’s a fear of getting lost in one of her collages (but in a good way).

With a passion for collage art, she admitted that “the one disadvantage of collage is that sometimes the papers are very old, and can disintegrate or tear easily. The advantages are that the colors and quality of the paper are very beautiful, they are simply not made that way anymore.”
