Stephen Talasnik 
February 12th - May 10th, 2

Court Tree Collective and Collision Projects proudly present Passage a site specific sculpture by Stephen Talasnik. Having regularly exhibited both domestically and abroad, Passage is his first New York City ephemeral installation in over a decade.

Stephen Talasnik’s work is informed by organic engineering and architecture. His three dimensional works are linear extensions of drawing; his primary studio pursuit since leaving Grad School in Rome, Italy.

Although formally trained in Fine Arts at RISD his works are inspired by building; whether with pencil line or wooden dowel. The seamless narrative between structure and void is the result of organic assembly and variable repetition. He uses no mathematics or computer program in measurement, instead relying only on instinct. Everything is built by hand; a desire of Talasnik to demonstrate the ability to create without a mechanical crutch.

The structures are improvisational; no preliminary plan, no advance knowledge of the journey. He has no idea where the process will take him and in that sense, both drawings and sculpture have a sense of the complete but unfinished. By remaining unfinished, the viewer is compelled to participate in the act of completion.

Ken Rush
Poolside (Online Exclusive)
December 3 – March 10th, 2021

Court Tree Collective proudly presents Poolside by Ken Rush. A 50 year exploration of the iconic symbol of leisure. Over the decades, Ken has periodically returned to pool imagery, but it took the isolation of last summer for him to embrace the work he had started in 1970.

Artist Statement:
I grew up in the New York suburbs surrounded by beach and country clubs, and one summer, my parents installed a swimming pool. Swimming and hanging out at our secluded pool filled my summer days. When I spent my Junior year of art school in London, I was inspired by David Hockney’s work and my own summer memories, and began my own pool paintings. Over the decades, I have periodically returned to pool imagery, but it took the isolation of last summer for me to completely embrace the work I had started in 1970. The pool paintings have evolved, They have become simpler and almost idiomatic, but for me the original mystery of the remembered pools remain.
