Bit of Bite -Cider Gallery

BitofBite_PC2_preview-01

One of my prints (above, published with Directangle Press) is included in A Bit of Bite, a printmaking exhibition at the Cider Gallery. This exhibition explores ideas about food and the act of consuming it through a range of prints and works on paper. Whether these prints explore the harvesting and gathering of food, fine dining or fast food, or industrial aspects of food production, each of these artists brings their own perspectives to the table.

Decay – Fraction Print Studio

Seep, screenprint on newsprint, 2014

Reflections on vulnerability, death, and the impermanence of the body.  Large-scale photographs capture Torgerson’s screenprint figures succumbing to their decayed & damaged surroundings. These works provide an intimate pause in which to consider the frailty of the body; allowing us to dwell on uncomfortable truths.

Panel Talk at SGCi Atlanta 2017

troy
I will be speaking as a part of a panel, Co-Terminus: Sculpture & Space Through Print, during the SGCi; the national printmaking conference. Chaired by Patrick Vincent, this panel embraces the way paper and print aesthetics have been incorporated into installation and sculptural forms; discussing the way print media is integrated and coterminous with physical environments. Panelists Camilla Taylor, Tonja Torgerson, and Leslie Friedman will discuss works that cut space with paper, create new graphic forms, and impress bare walls with ink and matrix.
