Personal Statement
I create false paper cities that will remind the viewer of our fragile world and the man-made environments we create. I rip, tear and cut reclaimed images with purpose. I want the viewer to struggle with the fragility of the paper juxtaposed to the strong, concrete images of a building, person or object that has been printed upon it.  Humans and objects can erode and fall apart at any time; it is all paper thin.  I utilize two-dimensional reclaimed flat images and force them into a dimensional structure which gives your psyche a sense of movement and depth. I call this: “Structural Collage.” A portion of all my art sales benefits Cancer Research Institute.

Art Review
Born outside of Chicago, Jaime Becker was and is influenced by the buzz and draw of a city and how people relate to their environment.  Employing mixed media to inspire and make anew, Jaime Becker’s environmentally conscious collage is complex and graceful.  Found objects of discarded material and recycled products texture her three-dimensional pieces and imbue her flat works with false illusions and a lively avoidance. A piece of wood abandoned from a construction site, a kitchen cabinet left for the garbage collector, a vacationer’s post-card that never found its way home reminds us that anything can be art and they all have living breathing stories we know nothing about.  Many of these images cannot be pinpointed to specific time or place. They are from everywhere. They are everything. They are a manufactured truth. Becker reminds us that forgotten items, lost to time and the elements, can be both harrowing and sacred.  Her art is unrefined, the edges exposed, the feeling crisp.  

Jaime Becker is redefining and expanding on what collage means and is taking it to a new level. She brings it out of the one-dimensional plane and carries it past the canvas.  Jaime has been greatly influenced by the Impressionist Movement, Cubism and the Dada Movement.  She shows the viewer the big strokes of the idea of a cityscape, of a location and of a feeling. A viewer can get dwarfed in the void and the congestion of her art. It is a labyrinth of options of which way to look and which way is up or down. Its perspective is moveable.  

Influences
Jaime Becker is inspired by the Impressionist movement with a nod to Dadaism and Cubism. She uses reclaimed objects to build the impression of city environs where people do not make eye-contact with each other. She doesn’t abide by any sense of traditional perspective. Her pieces have multiple vantage points all assembled and sharing the same space.
