Jenny Schmid is a professor of printmaking at the University of Minnesotta, and deeply influenced by the history of printmaking; in particular, Medieval and Renaissance engraving and images of social commentary and political satire by Goya and Breugel. Early themes are combined with 21st century popular culture that reference feminist non-fiction, rock music, the Czech and Slovak Republics, and film noir. Using this diverse artistic language Schmid creates a personal imaginary world, a gender utiopia she calls Dzenska Republika (Repulic of Jenny in Czech/Slovak).
