Lecture – Thursday October 18, 2012 @ 7pm
Room 109, McCarty Auditorium, Art & Architecture Bldg.
Free and Open to the Public
The paintings that are being exhibited are painted on the floor and are scaled in relation to the artist’s height. Treib is searching for an image that is not from a singular viewpoint, but includes and entertains the inconsistencies inherent in vision itself. For example, the type of disjuncture that is experienced everyday, but is smoothed over and made imperceptible through habit, which is the act of synthesizing the separate views from both eyes. The paintings are rooted in the physical disjuncture that is part of the body.
Patricia Treib received an MFA from Columbia University in 2006. Her works have recently been exhibited at Wallspace in New York and Favorite Goods in Los Angeles. Treib had her first New York exhibition at John Connelly Presents and also had a solo show with Golden Gallery in Chicago. She has had residencies at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture and the Marie Walsh Sharpe Foundation. Treib lives and works in New York.

The Artist-in-Residence Program in Painting and Drawing was initiated in 1982, and is a major part of the curriculum and community in Painting and Drawing. The AIR demonstrate the relevance and influence of their ideas with their respected and growing exhibition record and with their ability to verbally connect the ideas central to their work to those extant in both the art world and the School of Art at the University of Tennessee. The AIR adds to the vitality and vibrancy of that discourse among faculty and students of the School of Art.
