We are absolutely delighted to invite artist Jeremy Lundquist to print at Spudnik for the duration of the summer. He will be continuing a body of work that he began at Kala Institute in 2008.
“I am interested in our culture’s attempt to fit in every detail and the result of the impossibility of that action. Here lies the difficulty of knowing what to hold on to and what to let go of.”
Jeremy Lundquist was born in California and currently lives and works in
Chicago. Jeremy teaches in the Printmedia department at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. His current work in print, drawing, installation, and cut and collaged paper examines and organizes decay, specifically, the mundane and outmoded objects of Middle America. The result is a body of work questioning contemporary notions of progress and cleanliness by presenting images of loss and disillusion / dissolution. He has exhibited his work throughout the Midwest, as well as nationally and internationally. He has been an artist-in-residence at Ox-Bow School of Art , Harold Arts, and Kala Art Institute and will be in residence at the Vermont Studio Center in January. He received his BA in Studio Art from Grinnell College and his MFA in Printmaking from Ohio University.
