Bettina Speckner

Bettina Speckner is known for her meticulously crafted pieces that incorporate found and taken photographs. The antique ferrotypes of portraits that Bettina scavenges invite narrative and nostalgia and are inherently super charged mementos of a former time. This intimacy is enhanced by intricate alterations, embedded stones, pearls, and precious settings that are as carefully considered on the back as the front.  Bettina has received many awards and accolades for her work including the prestigious Herbert Hoffmann Prize, commendations for the Danner Prize and The Prize of the State of Bavaria.
