The Jane Hartsook Gallery is pleased to present new work by Lindsay Pichaske. Pichaske is known for creating sculptures of animals that blur the line between the real and the fantastic, the animal and the human. Made out of clay and covered with a “skin” of surprising materials like string, sticks, nails, sequins or feathers, Pichaske’s creations ask viewers to reconsider their preconceptions around empathy and sentiency. 
 
Bringing each sculpture to life is equal parts control and discovery for Pichaske. As she shapes each creature, it becomes an individual with its own personality and emotional life. By mixing gestures and features between species, and by using mundane materials in unusual ways, Pichaske encourages us to rethink our standard perceptions of other animals. Her sculptures ask us to consider what we have in common, and to see an orangutan not just as an ape, but as a mother, a caregiver, a protector, with hopes and fears just like our own. 
 
Pichaske is an artist based out of St. Louis, Missouri. She received her MFA from the University of Colorado, Boulder and her BFA from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Her work has been exhibited widely, including at Racine Art Museum (Racine, WI, 2018); Washington Project for the Arts (Washington, DC; 2017); and Duane Reed Gallery (St. Louis, MO; 2013–present). She has won a number of awards including the Individual Artist Award from the Maryland State Arts Council (2014); and the National Council for Education in the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) Emerging Artist Award (2013). Pichaske has held a number of residencies, including at: Archie Bray Foundation for Ceramics Arts (Helena, MT), ART342 (Fort Collins, CO), and Watershed Center for Ceramic Arts (Newcastle, ME).
