Tonja Torgerson is currently the Printmaking Fellow at Lawrence Arts Center in Lawrence, KS. Her artwork is regularly exhibited nationally and internationally; and is included the several private and museum collections, including the Weisman Art Museum and the Minnesota Museum of American Art.

Torgerson deals with illness, death, and the impermanence of the body.  Reminders of death and the transient materiality of our bodies are disconcerting. Nevertheless, through the blending of beauty into disgust, the work retains a pervasiveness that allows the viewer an intimate moment to reflect on these uncomfortable truths.
