Kim Beck incorporates images of architecture and landscape into her installations, sculptures, and works on paper. She frequently calls attention to the dreary aspects of contemporary life that most would rather ignore, such as gas station banners, storage buildings, and overgrown weeded lots. Recently, her work has explored the economic crises and its consequences: foreclosure and liquidation signs, and vacant storefronts. For The Sky is the Limit / NYC (2011), Beck had a plane fly over western Manhattan, writing phrases in the sky like “Lost our Lease.” In her 2011-12 series “Space Available,” three empty billboards were installed on the Highline in New York City, echoing billboards and buildings in partial states of construction.
