Liz Ingram: Site Collaborations
Liz Ingram, visiting artist

The exhibition Liz Ingram: Site Collaborations features prints that were developed through the long-term engagement with a specific location in the boreal forest of Alberta. For over 35 years source material has been generated from this particular place/lake/stream, with water and the human body as ongoing subjects. A substantial number of works involve collaboration with her partner Bernd Hildebrandt.

Ingram offers, “I am attempting to connect the viewer to a sense of our place in/as nature. My work represents an attempt to stimulate a heightened awareness of our inextricable and fundamental oneness with nature, and of the elemental aspect of water to all life forms.”

Liz Ingram was born in Argentina and grew up in New Delhi, Mumbai and Toronto. For over forty years she taught at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, and is currently Distinguished University Professor Emerita of printmaking and drawing/intermedia. Her artworks have been exhibited in numerous solo and duo exhibitions, and over 300 group exhibitions in North and South America, Europe, the Middle East and the Far East. She has participated in juried International Biennials and Triennials for many years and has received awards for her prints at juried exhibitions in Canada, Slovenia (Yugoslavia), Poland, Korea, Brazil, Estonia, India and Finland. In 2016 she was appointed to the Order of Canada. She has been visiting artist at universities in North America and overseas including the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music, the Musashino Art University in Tokyo and the University of Applied Sciences in Münster, Germany.
