“…mending all this shows an example, It shows the force of sacrifice and likeness and disaster and a reason.” — Gertrude Stein, Tender Buttons.

STATEMENT:

I am a visual artist and poet working in a variety of media, from textiles made from recycled and new materials, to stitched and etched drawings on digital-photograph substrates, sculptural and video installation, and image/text collage. In my work, I examine issues of disturbance, reparation and collapse, and the nostalgia and regret that can accompany loss. I work in series/projects and often pair my visual work with poems.

BIO:

Kate Ingold is a visual artist and poet. She received her BA in English-Rhetoric with a minor in Visual Art from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and her MFA in Studio Writing (Image/Text) from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She was awarded an Illinois Arts Council Artist Fellowship Finalist Award in 2009, the Poetry Society of America’s National Chapbook Fellowship in 2007, and a CAAP Grant from the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs in 2001. Ingold’s poetry chapbook, Dream of Water, was published by the Poetry Society of America in 2008. Her work is in the permanent collections of the Fisher Museum of Art and the Illinois State Museum. She was represented by the Roy Boyd Gallery in Chicago until its closing in fall 2014.
