Rhonda Weppler and Trevor Mahovsky




Part of events on ArtRabbit in: Toronto, New York

Weppler and Mahovsky’s interdisciplinary practice is intimately tied to the joy, anxiety, history, and narrative potential of objects. Often exploiting the tension between specificity and ubiquity, their work engages the viewer in a playful game of surface recognition. In contrast, however, their varied processes of making utilize a slow effort of material production and accumulation. Their works are simultaneously depictions of things and records of a process of making, and thus it is hard to isolate their representational cues from the literal qualities of their distressed, creased or slumped materials. To the artists, the result is “three dimensional cartoons that remain firmly embedded in the world they flout”.
