Texas Tech University School of Art Presents
I Have No Mouth, But I Must Scream: Lindsey Phillips

LUBBOCK – Landmark Arts at the Texas Tech University School of Art presents I Have No Mouth, But I Must Scream: Lindsey Phillips at the TTU Satellite Gallery as part of the July 2017 First Friday Art Trail. The exhibition will be on view from 6 PM – 9 PM, Friday, July 7th and by appointment through July 23, 2017. The exhibition is free and open to the public.

In this exhibition, I Have No Mouth, But I Must Scream., Lindsey Phillips examines the nature of shame and secrecy through a series of work produced in photography, digital imaging, printmaking, and bookmaking. The artist endeavors to convey coping with the memories and emotions of difficult experiences. About her exploration through this series, Phillips explains, "Despite our desire to avoid such negative experiences, we still feel the need to revisit these things, like a throbbing sore in the mouth. However; even though the subjects of our shame are painful, we can still make something beautiful with them, even if they hurt us."
