Denise Treizman is an artist born and raised in Chile, who has an MFA in Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts, New York. She creates sculptures and installation-based works, combining found objects with drawings, weavings and ceramics. Her work questions pervasive consumer culture, waste and excess by re- appropriating overlooked and underutilized materials into playful works of art. Guided by intuition, she explores material relationships, chance and resourcefulness. For Denise, the city is the ultimate creative source, providing her with an unending supply of eclectic and everyday objects. Working both on the street and the studio, she examines how worthless fragments can be transformed into unexpected art experiences. Her process is at once an act of artistic ownership over her materials as well as an exploration of the infinite possibilities that they afford her.
