Traywick Contemporary is pleased to announce 2-D/3-D, a group exhibition featuring the work of Mari Andrews, Jessica Martin, David McDonald, Aurora Robson and Lucrecia Troncoso. The show explores the ways in which two-dimensional and three-dimensional practices inform one another in each of the five artists' work.

The drawings and sculptures of Mari Andrews, based in the Bay Area, are a continuous study of the relationship between temporality and permanence. Her work often integrates delicate natural materials such as acorns and leaves, mirroring fragile human vulnerabilities.

Bay Area artist Jessica Martin's work is based on sketches and photographs that the artist abstracts to create hybrid environments and objects. Often translating specific details between her paintings and unique wax and wire sculptures, Martin fuses original and new imagery such that the past, present, real and imagined exist together.

Los Angeles artist David McDonald's work centers on a fascination with the ways in which nearly unnoticeable parts can add up to humble and evocative sums. His paintings and drawings pick up where his architectural 3-D pieces leave off, continuing the exploration of relationships between interlocking elements.

Bay Area artist Lucrecia Troncoso also questions perceptions of materiality as she seeks to record natural phenomena through the manipulation of familiar yet elusive materials such as Christmas lights and paper in her installation-based works.

New York artist Aurora Robson's collages and sculptures explore contradictions. She creates simultaneously unfamiliar and commonplace organic forms out of synthetic materials once considered detritus, using recycled plastic bottles in her sculptures and creating intricately layered collages out of junk-mail.
