Inga Pickering
Medford Lakes, NJ

Artwork Details
Fragment #2

10" x 8.5"

Inga Pickering was among the featured artists in the 2001 New Jersey Fine Arts Annual exhibition, entitled Crossing Boundaries, at the Noyes Museum of Art. A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, Pickering has received numerous awards for her work, which has been featured in both group and solo exhibitions.

The catalogue for the Crossing Boundaries exhibition provides a concise description of her work: “Inga Pickering makes delicate graphite drawings that are frequently inspired by her travels. She is fascinated by archaeology and enjoys looking at ancient ruins. Her works on paper are not images of specific sites but subtle bits of reminiscences, as the titles indicate they are literally collaged fragments. Unlike other artists, who are all very focused on the process of making art, Pickering works intuitively - 'Don't ask me what goes through my head, it is too hard to articulate how the art evolves'. Pickering considers the pencil 'a basic and simple mode of expression'. Each frieze-like composition is a grouping of drawings that have been executed over a period of time. It is not uncommon for the artist to go back and reclaim a passage from work that may have once been discarded.”
