New Fine Art (March 25th - May 6th) featuring works by Derek Weisberg + Molly Rae + Aliza Morell + Emily Klass + Panayiotis Terzis
A Light in the Dark featuring Jasmine Murrell's Sacred Vagina
Trestle Projects is proud to present New Fine Art, a group show featuring a small sampling of Brooklyn based artists whose works are made of traditional fine art materials.
"For me, the ultimate romance pictured here is with painting itself." - Aliza Morell
New Fine Art presents a small sampling of Brooklyn based artists whose practices are centered around traditional fine art materials ie plaster, oil paints, watercolor, and clay. By juxtaposing highly rendered works alongside more organic and deconstructed artworks, this exhibition brings the power of material to the forefront. Through mimicry, remediation, and unconventional applications, these artists push the limits of their materials and explore a corresponding sensuality. Each artist engages in an unfolding dialogue between the self and the material - a transference between hand, form, and thought. In this way, the artists in New Fine Art see their processes as both a method of inquiry to explore materiality as well as tools to realize unconscious and psychic visions.
Special thanks to our sponsor Trestle Gallery.
400 3rd Ave, Gowanus BK
Open Hours: Wednesdays 1pm-8pm, Saturdays + Sundays 1pm-5pm and by appointment - email@example.com
A Light in the Dark features a neon sign intended to act as a guide in both concept and form. The work is displayed in The BackStairwell, a solo project space in an unused stairwell, on the ground floor window of Trestle Projects at 400 3rd Ave, facing 6th street and Halyards Bar.
We are thrilled showcase Jasmine Murrell's Sacred Vagina for the debut of A Light in the Dark.
Jasmine Murrell is a Brooklyn based artist who uses photography, installations, and relational aesthetics to examine identity through biological forms, organic materials, and memory. Ultimately, Murrell's practice seeks to find the Source and help others to remember their origins.
