Megan Hinds is a Midwest artist from Champaign, IL. She attended Illinois State University where she received her Bachelors in Fine Art with a focus in printmaking. She graduated in 2016, with magna-cum laude and having created her first solo exhibition “The Fourth Wall.” Hinds is currently in Chicago, IL where she continues her printmaking practice at Chicago Printmakers Collaborative. She is constantly investigating societies collective brilliance and communication. Her hand cut 3-dimensional intaglio prints provides the viewer with the opportunity for exploration and discovery. The outer layers invoke camouflage and chaotic movement. As the layers recede, the focal point of the piece becomes more organized and focused. These pieces are offering a picture of line, movement, and texture integrated in such a way as to display both uniformity and chaos, continuity and community.
