Detroit-based artist Lindsay Splichal builds space-responsive print monotypes reflecting on the familiar of the domestic in her family’s construction heritage through the vehicles of printmaking, sculpture, and installation. Splichal was born in North Dakota as the daughter of a builder and granddaughter of an architect. Alongside her father, she spent her youth at the construction site, observing the labor, intentionality, and layering of information necessary for building our domestic homes and architecture. These formative experiences are present in elements throughout her work. Splichal relocated to Minneapolis, Minnesota in 2008 and went on to receive her BFA from Minneapolis College of Art and Design in 2012 in Print, Paper, and Books. There she was exposed to the brutalist architecture movement and the influential works and writings by artists such as Donald Judd, Gedi Sibony, Daniel Buren, and Robert Ryman. Through the non-profit, Juxtaposition Arts as the Lead Textile Printing Instructor, she contributed seven years to mentoring inner city youth on the processes and techniques of textile screen printing. During Splichal’s nine years in Minneapolis she also contributed to youth education at various institutions including Walker Art Center, Minneapolis Institute of Art, and Minneapolis College of Art and Design. She received residencies including Highpoint Center for Printmaking Jerome Residency and The White Page. And in 2018, Highpoint Center for Printmaking also featured Splichal in their Outstanding Affiliates group show at the University of Wyoming Art Museum. She achieved numerous showings including solo shows at Guthrie Theatre, St Cloud State University, The Porch Gallery, and Public Functionary as well as participating in group shows at various locations including SooVac, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, and Yeah Maybe. In 2017 she relocated to Detroit, Michigan where she completed her MFA in Print Media from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2019 and was awarded the Merit Scholarship. During her studies at Cranbrook, Splichal explored literature including the writing “Queer Phenomenology” by Sara Ahmed, which provided additional foundation and language for what compels Splichal’s work forward. In Detroit so far, she has participated in group shows including Cranbrook Art Museum and Playground Detroit.
