Objects of  Memory

Assistant Professor at the University of Indianapolis– teaching Foundations and Printmaking Katherine Fries was raised in Lincoln, Nebraska, where she was immersed in stories about her family and their friends.

These stories captivated her and were illustrated with mementos, photos and imagination: She wanted to know as much as she could about their lives and eventually her interest would lead her to consider how she and her peers interact with history, memory, and the objects left behind.

As an artist, Fries is interested in capturing and preserving the world around her, being, the people, their stories, rituals, possessions and history. Her work constructs spaces that act as an externalization of an internal experience.
