Lisa Hochstein continues her work in collage with a new series begun in 2011, during a one-month artist’s residency at the Vermont Studio Center.

For over five years, Hochstein has used vintage sheet music covers as source material for her collages. Her work ranges from precise geometric structures to painterly compositions superimposed on a background architecture. The latest work pushes collage further towards gesture and painting, while remaining rooted in the artist's fascination with color and typography from early-20th-century printed material.

The October show at Stripe coincides with Santa Cruz County’s Open Studios. To see more of Lisa’s work, stop by her studio during North County or Encore weekend (October 13th/14th and 20th/21st), or visit her website at
