Coincidental Realities represents a watershed in Liz Ingram's development as an artist and printmaker. In the 1970s, she produced prints primarily using lithography and screen printing techniques. However, in the 1980s she began to make etchings. This was a period when she feels her ideas as an artist, often based upon landscape imagery derived from a private holding west of Edmonton, and her command of the medium came together as a single entity.
At this time, 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.”
Ingram has been teaching printmaking and drawing at the University of Alberta since 1976.
