Trish Tillman presents an exhibition, Remains (to Be Seen), that explores the visual devises of commemoration. Inspired by iconic and personal mementos of her late grandparents, Tillman’s show distills memorabilia into geometric forms, transforming nostalgia into present-day symbols of ritual, rebellion, family and home. Known for her meticulously crafted sculptures, Tillman combines industrial materials with the aesthetics of hard rock, goth, fetish and kitsch to create a contemporary signature that hems together ideas of fashion, furniture, ornamentation and ritual objects.
