Becc Ország was awarded The Young and Emerging Artist Award of $5000 in the Hazelhurst Art on Paper Prize.

She looks at our inherent need to be lead and belong, and brings attention to our tendency to deflect responsibility and blur lines between reality and fantasy in an effort to bring meaning into life.Read More
