Trachtenberg writes that “textiles console us. They adorn, protect, and swaddle us. These meditative constructions often incorporate or reference textiles, materials that envelop us from birth to death. The groundwork for this body of work comes from collecting, examining, shaping, and dismantling shoes, underwear, upholstery, zippers, and printed matter. Hard elements such as wood, metal and Plexiglas also weave their way into my constructions.” Trachtenberg notes that “I’m drawn to the familiar and flawed, characteristics that speak to shared human histories. My work begins with a response/attraction to a thing or circumstance that profoundly touches or disturbs me. In varied processes of painting, printmaking, sculpture, collage and installation, my approach is one of accretion and subtraction, tethered to traditional art and craft techniques. Improvisation and site specificity are factors in determining how to situate a work.” Open Tue – Fri 10:30am – 5:30pm, Sat 11am - 6pm
