Tomorrow: moving the tires! (4/26)

I was piling up tires with Shirel (thanks for the help!) so that we can smoothly get them out of the studio for my move tomorrow!!

Moving from tires to PVC tubes...

PVC pipes are all painted, and I am applying resin for a shiny finish and also to protect them better, from the weather and interaction. Inside they will have different materials that I have already started ordering and collecting..

Tires, tires, and more tires! DONE!!

I have finished painting all the tires. I keep piling them and combining them in different ways, to see how they interact withing each other and get inspired for the on-site installation. I also had the opportunity to have friends and people visit my studio (for Open Studios at the Elizabeth Foundation) so got a sense of scale and interaction that people add to the work.

And some texture too! (glitter and ropes)

Color starts taking over tires!!! Yay!!!

The Artist

Denise Treizman(b. 1979, Santiago, Chile)

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).
