Amy Trachtenberg

San Francisco, CA

"I’ve experimented with many different forms and media in shifting grammars of abstraction and in a range of scale and venue. My interest in the consequences of material culture and actions of intuitive processes are explored between painting, collage, sculpture and design.

The paintings with collage and cast-off materials share attitude with the wall sculpture and architecturally specific work. Resonant with the history of textiles and exploring the languages of color and surface pattern in painting, I employ experimental printmaking processes on various substrates such as cloth and ceramics. Used shards and commercially made materials abut inside these temporary and permanent pieces. With a material alchemy these hybrid works are conduits for reflecting the tensions and fluidity in nature and culture."
