International Centre of Graphic Arts (MGLC)

Elizabeth Ingram, Fragile Connection, 1987, combined intaglio printmaking techniques; recipient of the International Jury Prize, 17th International Biennial of Graphic Arts, Ljubljana, 1987.

The exhibition included fifteen prints made between 1975 and 1988. In the prints by Canadian artist Elisabeth Ingram, the tactile reality that we perceive with our senses is intertwined with elements of the imagination. She is instinctively attracted to nature, which is why her works elevate and celebrate the process of growth and decay. In this process, she senses the mysticism of being and ceasing. She is attracted to the unnoticed fragments of nature, which she records by drawing or photographing them and then, in the printing process, transforming them into a new world in which the recognisable intertwines with the unknown. She most often uses the techniques of colour intaglio printing, but also employs lithography and screenprinting.
