“I’m Thinking About Painting”

Opening: Sunday, December 12 from 12 PM – 4 PM

Gallery hours: Sundays, 12 PM – 4 PM and by appointment

Space & Time is thrilled to present a solo exhibition by Selina Trepp titled, I’m Thinking about Painting. Over the past decade, Trepp’s canvases have accumulated layers from being over-painted in response to her perpetually evolving studio practice, a somewhat cannibalistic circuit of material and ideas. These paintings are now exiting Trepp’s studio ecosystem and get to be the stars of the show, hanging on the gallery walls, for the first time existing not in service to a larger piece, but as art in their own right.

Following the opening, Trepp’s recent stop motion animation video, Virtual Exhibition, will occupy the gallery’s storefront windows and be visible from the street after dark. Essentially, Trepp presents two parallel exhibitions featuring the same work from different perspectives for the viewer to experience during day and night. Please read the artist’s essay to accompany the exhibition here.

Trepp also presents an edition of silkscreen paintings on paper, each unique, available for $100.00 each. An excellent addition or gift for that special someone in your life who is also thinking about painting.

Artist Bio:

Selina Trepp (Swiss/American b.1973) is an artist researching economy and improvisation. Finding a balance between the intuitive and conceptual is a goal, living a life of adventure is a way, embarrassment is often a result.

She works across media, combining performance, installation, painting, and sculpture to create intricate setups that result in photos, drawings and animations.

In addition to the studio-based work, Selina is active in the experimental music scene. In this context she sings and plays the videolah, her midi controlled video synthesizer, to create projected animations in real-time as visual music. She performs with a varying cast of collaborators and as one half of Spectralina, her long running audiovisual collaboration with Dan Bitney. In 2021, her animations were projected onto the Merchandise Mart in downtown Chicago on a monumental scale. In 2022, Trepp will have an exhibition at the Chicago Cultural Center.
