Denise Treizman creates work that repurposes found and ready-made objects spontaneously encountered during her daily life. These materials become part of sculptures that are endlessly in flux. Conceived in a playful and intuitive manner, the work examines ideas of informality, improvisation, and new forms of abstract assemblage. In her process, Treizman embraces chance, explores material relationships and mostly uses what is at hand. Utilizing society’s excess, her work emphasizes an overly consumerist culture where materials are easily disposed of. She asks the viewer to examine how worthless materials can present themselves as unexpected art experiences. Treizman studied at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (BBA, 2002) and the School of Visual Arts (MFA, 2013).
