Fragile Connection, one of four prints by Liz Ingram donated to the University of Alberta in 1996, represent a watershed in her development as an artist and printmaker. In the 1970s Liz Ingram worked primarily in lithography and screenprinting. In the 1980s, she began etching, a period when she feels her ideas as an artist as well as her command of the medium met and came together as a single entity. At this time Liz Ingram stated she was "preoccupied with the synthesis of reality and illusion, of observation and the imagination, of recognition and the unknown. Light and image are tools, which I use in an attempt to transform paper into an inner landscape."
