A Message From Our Chief Curator...

We are thrilled to announce that our Trestle Gallery exhibition program theme for 2018 is “Expanding Borders”. We chose this theme in response to the national political dialogue around the idea of closing borders, and what it means to be invited or excluded from a cultural dialogue.

Borders are limits. Artists cross limits, push against them formally, conceptually, and through the materials of their choice. They expose areas that provoke us to see beauty and contemplate life, but at times, confront us with uncomfortable truths. Borders exist and are flexible between the real and imaginary; the past and present; the personal and political; and the physical and psychological borders that surround us everyday.

Trestle introduces #TrestleArtistResident Alumni spotlight, Jacob Hicks! Jacob completed his residency with Trestle Gallery in 2013. He states: “My works are expressions of the contemporary conjunction within which we reside, the awkward interstices between the death of religion as our primal organization and an unnamed future. Through them I mourn the loss of a unifying narrative as I edge toward the requisite recognition of cultural simultaneity. My work is particularly informed by the art of the medieval period, the primitive Flemish, the German, French, and Italian renaissance, and the 19th and 20th century African sculpture that so informed European modernism and cubism.” Jacob has had solo exhibitions in Gates Gallery, MD, The Cupping Room Cafe, New York, NY, The Doolin Gallery, TX, and group shows at Mark Miller Gallery, Garis and Hahn Gallery at New York, NY, The @Lounge Underground, Trestle Gallery, at Brooklyn, NY, and many more.

Trestle Artist Profiles

Christina Kelly

Introduction: name and role at TG Christina Kelly. Residency Adviser.

Background on your career to date as an artist: My MFA in film/video and I worked as a film editor for several years. During that period I was also making short film and video pieces. Eventually I started experimenting with installation and other kinds time based, narrative work. For the last couple years I’ve been working on a comic book series, which in some ways is like making a film but without having to manage any people. 

When did you join the Trestle Gallery? How has Trestle impacted your life and work as an artist? I started by leading the critiques at Trestle and I then I had the opportunity to move into the role of a Residency Adviser to the Trestle Open Studio Residency Program. Leading a residency group has been a great way for me to connect with artists who have different kinds of practices and concerns and to really expand the conversation I have around art making.  I’ve also formed important friendships with some of the other members. And last fall I collaborated on an installation and audio project with a novelist who worked in the writers room that shared space with Trestle. We then had the opportunity to exhibit our piece at Trestle Projects.  Being part of a diverse community of artists has had a positive impact on both my work as well as my quality of life as an artist in NYC.

Why do you think Trestle Gallery is an important institution? As living as an artist in NYC becomes more and more challenging its important to have access to a community that does so much to create opportunities for artists to meet, collaborate, and show their work.

Trestle Artist Profiles

Myra Kooy, TG Artist Member

How would you describe yourself and your approach as a visual artist?
I was always making art. Ever since I was a child, it was like, ‘What materials do I want to work with?’ There were all these different and various tools, none of them probably appropriate for what I wanted to do with them. I wouldn’t sit still at a paper—I could never sit still. And I would always build things. At my core, I’m a sculptor as well. I’ve had so many different materials at my fingertips and it was just so exciting. And that’s why my studio is kind of like this and my work is so diverse. The concept of the right tools to make a product has never been something I had in my head. 

What projects are you currently working on?
The way that I work, I get mostly inspired by materials and things I see in my environment. I’m trying to explore formality a little bit. Formality in the sense of materials or styles that might be used by others, but reinterpreting and reclaiming them. For example, the printing press, printing on paper, using canvases instead of found objects to paint on. These [paintings] here are the exploration and transportation of light. In some way or another, they’re environmental. I [also] started painting my great, great grandmother. [Here’s] an actual [photo] of her. I knew that eventually, I was going to “wash” her away, but she would form back in. I was adopted into a white family. I actually met my biological family and now I know some of these elements.

How has Trestle impacted your career?
I was moving from New Jersey, where I had a lot of outdoor space, indoor space, a place where I could use a grinder, a place where I could use a sander and tablesaw, a place where I could have my industrial sewing machine. It was like this world of heaven and I just loved it. But I also lived somewhat like a nun. I had a single bed that I slept in and my whole life was [about] creation. I was never sad or depressed. When I [moved] into this space, I had to find another voice. I had to be able to build another voice inside myself. Here I got to talk to people who have been artists for a really long time—working in different mediums, working in mediums I was working in. Trestle Gallery has been a gift because I was afraid of myself. I was not willing to go out into the community. The people here are all artists and we’re all a little bit tilted, in one direction or another. Because we’re all tilted, it makes it okay. 

Aima St. Hunon, TG Artist Member

What projects are you currently working on?
This [painting] is for a project. It will be shown in a new renovated brownstone. They want to sell it, but with some beautiful artwork. This painting will be shown on the top of the bedroom. My inspiration was to do two goddesses, two very sensual women. I had this vision of blue—I wanted to see blue. I don’t know why. And I love texture and layers. I love to create volume. I want to be not too realistic, but with the color, bring something more abstract.

Any upcoming news or events you would like to share with our Trestle followers? 
The Domenico Vacca Art Gallery, on 15 West 55th Street, keeps some of my sculptures. We have a good relationship. Last week, I made this life-size sculpture in bronze. I have this kind of vision of making art performances on the streets of NYC. So I wanted to bring this big bronze sculpture from Domenico Vacca to Central Park. I also have a costume, which is the front of my sculpture. So I wore the costume with a mask. My friend who was with me was holding the sculpture on the street, on this big pedestal, while I was dancing around the sculpture. 

How has Trestle impacted your career?
I love the space. There’s a lot of light and energy, so that helps me to create a lot and have a lot of inspiration. It’s also great to interact with other artists, to exchange ideas, feelings and emotions. And there are some great artists here.

Artist Profile: Tahir Karmali. Trestle Visiting Artist Resident Winter/Spring 2017 How has Trestle impacted your career? When I began at Trestle I had to produce a lot of work for the Art Africa Fair in Cape town - It was very helpful to have space and time to produce the work. I have also had the opportunity to have studio visits and with curators that I would have not usually had the space to do so. Any upcoming things you'd like to share with the Trestle network? I am happy to share that the Fair went really well in Cape Town. I will have another display of this work in Red Hook at the beginning of May. While in the space I have managed to expand and develop the work further than I thought. What are you working on now? I am working on an installation and a series of works that uses paper making as a metaphor for border creation. I use historic narratives from Colonial East Africa to discuss the role of identities on paper that encourages limitation of movement and filtration of people.

Participating in Open Studios has brought more opportunities than I ever expected.  Any upcoming things you'd like to share with the Trestle network? I currently have a show up at Victori+Mo in Bushwick and this summer I will have work in the Bronx Museum of Art Fourth AIM Biennial which will be up from mid-July through October.  What are you working on now? I’m currently working on new hanging pieces—I make paintings with caulking on wire mesh. I’m trying to work through some new ideas for those as well as a few other ideas for new work.
