Trudie Teijink

Kimmel Foundation Emerging Visual Artist Award

Visual artist Trudie Teijink earned her BFA at the Amsterdam School of the Arts, the Netherlands. Trudie spent a semester at Sint Lucas Visual Arts in Ghent, Belgium and continued her education with an independent study at the Utrecht School of the Arts, the Netherlands. After living and working in Greece and Germany for several years, she moved to Lincoln in 2001. She received her MFA with an emphasis on printmaking at the University of Nebraska Lincoln, NE in 2010.

Her work has been exhibited nationally at the Sheldon Museum of Art, Lincoln, NE, the Great Plains Art Museum, Lincoln, NE, and at University of the Arts, Philadelphia, PA. Internationally at Chamalières, France, Pfaffenhofen, Germany, and the University of Alberta, Canada. Her work is in permanent collections such as the Thomas P. Coleman Collection at the Sheldon Museum of Art, Lincoln, NE and the Lilli M. Kleven Print Collection, Bemidji State Univeristy, MN. Trudie was a resident at the LUX Center for the Arts, Lincoln, NE where she also enjoyed teaching community art classes. Trudie taught studio classe as adjunct faculty at the University of Nebraska Lincoln, NE and at Doane College, Lincoln, NE.

Formation and decay—the confrontation with the conflict between our everyday activities, and the fleetingness of our existence form a constant undercurrent in my work. We are dragged through time and through space, but ultimately we are unavoidably lost in a swirl of oblivion. Given this dissonance, she questions the importance of our everyday life.
