Biography

Kathleen Neacy is a printmaker and physician from Illinois. Her printmaking utilizes relief, intaglio and monoprint techniques. Vulnerability, shadow, movement and invisibility are dominant themes in her work. She also works extensively examining how artistic practice survives and flourishes in spaces and margins of decreased access and resources. She developed a street art program for children, encouraging outreach and collaboration. She currently runs a Community Printmaking Collaborative Program developing several community-specific portraits. Dr. Neacy is currently enrolled in an undergraduate printmaking degree program under Margaret Buchen, and practices emergency medicine at a level 1 trauma center in Illinois.

Artist Statement

My current work examines subjects of vulnerability. Within our healthcare system, pain, vulnerability, disorientation, and distortion intersect. These pieces depict a blurred remembrances of varied patients and possible experiences. They are not depictions of individuals, except as their common experiences allows. Beneath each image is a collage of antique prescriptions culled from a pharmacy in Iowa. These emblematic papers support the physician patient relationship similarly to the visual depiction of the patient experience in the wood block print. Clinician compassion and attempt to comfort, along with the frustration of impotence and inability to cure are inherent and era independent.
