Lowell Ryan Projects in West Adams will be showcasing the work of Erin Trefey.
We found a bio online that states: "Erin Trefry makes visceral, emotionally charged sculptural paintings. As a descendant of textile designers, cobblers, and educators, her work suggests personal archeology. The warp and weft of fabric act as an inherent drawing and serves as a catalyst for her constructions. Shoes, handbags, shirts, belts, and pants once belonging to her mother are given new life in her sculptural assemblages. They echo the physicality of the body with “wounded symmetry.”
Their association with Japanese armor, African masks, and the Commedia Dell’Arte attempts to evoke the depth of human behavior and to provoke a new lens into contemporary sculpture.“
