Shannon Pritchard

Hello! My name is Shannon and I am a painter recently graduated from Indiana University Bloomington’s BFA painting program and art history program. I recently moved to Indianapolis and am looking forward to becoming more involved in the local artist community. I am currently working out of a home studio and creating as much work as my full-time work schedule allows. Please feel free to reach out to me for any reason!

About My Work:

Being an intensely emotional person, I have spent a majority of my teen and adult years trying, unsuccessfully, to suppress my feelings. I have always been surrounded by the notion that expressing emotions is weak and shameful but attempts to “toughen up” were always futile. This body of work has been a way for me to confront my emotions and attempt to come to terms with them. I am exploring the way that emotion and memory can manifest in physical spaces. The scenes that I create represent sentimental places that I attach to formative events in my life, both positive and negative. I find that humor and sadness exist simultaneously within each of these works and I aim to push the idea that these emotions are not mutually exclusive and are often present at the same time within my mind.
