Starlie Sokol-Hohne was born in 1958 in Santa Monica, California and completed her studies at UCLA in 1980. Combining images of antiquity with contemporary mixed media printmaking techniques, Starlie creates images with both past and present elements. As with many contemporary artists, photography and technology play a part in the achievement of the artists’ expression. Sokol images are conceived and assembled with sections of images from a variety of sources. As with Rauchenburg, the final product is the result of the unique combination and juxtaposition of photographic images. Physical collage and hand painting blend these elements into a more cohesive and realistic perspective, resulting in a style that is distinctively Sokol.
