Li Trincere

December 17, 2020

Li Trincere is a well-established American contemporary artist known for her non-objective paintings and drawings, reminiscent of geometric abstraction. Her painting is a process of elimination with certain non-objective principles she’s working with. Painting on shaped canvases represents an effort to eradicate all the spontaneous mark-making and strokes of an abstract painting. Trincere’s drawings are almost a prerequisite for the paintings, allowing her to define the space of the internal dynamics and the external parameters in the wider field. However, she also creates drawings that are independent artworks. They allow her to explore the formal elements of line, shape, and color that ultimately may give rise to similar paintings. In short, there is an integral dialogue between the two media.
