What Happened Here?
Intaglio Prints
by Carrie Lingscheit

Gallery open for viewing August 31 – September 22, 2017



Carrie Lingscheit originally hails from South Dakota, where her interest in printmaking was piqued through involvement in several Frogman’s summer print workshops. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of South Dakota in 2006, and her Master of Fine Arts from Ohio University in 2010. Lingscheit’s work has been included in numerous national and international exhibitions, dozens of invitational exchange portfolios, and is part of many private and public permanent collections including the Library of Congress. She lives and works in Chicago.




My work explores human interaction and the malleable nature of memory formation and recall, presenting dubious narratives characterized by omission, distortion, and hyperbole. Perception and remembrance are always imperfect – our every moment subject to omission as well as misinterpretation and embellishment by imagination and emotion. In turn, each subsequent recalling of an experience is subject to repression, convolution, and dissipation. Some memories become further permuted by conflation, separate remembrances morphing together like beads of moisture on glass. As our very identities are tangled up in past experience, I am fascinated by the notion of the gaps left by these absences of information, these holes within the structure of our past and present lives, these half-imagined pasts that become layered among the façade of one’s current self.
