Untitled is a black-and-white photograph of a wave just before it breaks as seen from the distance of an overlook. Donnelly’s interest in the waveform–visually, aurally, and perceptually–is made manifest in works across multiple media, including photography, drawing, video, sculpture, and performance.
Trisha Donnelly (b. 1974, lives in New York) is an artist who moves through different media, often translating between them or pushing their boundaries. Every aspect of her work’s execution and presentation—from its title and press release to exhibition wall texts—is included in this play. Through these material and conceptual strategies, Donnelly engages with ideas about time, presence, and the imagination. She received her MFA from Yale University in 2000 and her BFA in from the University of California, Los Angeles, in 1995. Recently, she was awarded the 2017 Wolfgang Hahn Prize.
