Passage 

Feb 12th - May 2nd 
Stephen Talasnik



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.








Court Tree Collective was established in 2013 by a group of artists and creatives with the primary purpose of representing and supporting the work of emerging and established contemporary artists. Since its opening Court Tree Collective has been a staple to south Brooklyn’s emerging art scene and in a short time has exhibited a number of important exhibitions. In addition they have curated a number of exhibitions at satellite locations throughout the states and abroad︎
