“Juxtaposed,” being placed side by side for contrast, speaks to the major paintings in this exhibit by Trine Bumiller on many levels—image, color, design, construction, past, present, experience and memory.

The richly glazed, color-infused works in “Juxtaposed” present multi-layers of imagery that are pulled apart and seen side by side. These large-scale paintings are each constructed from multiple sections of smaller paintings, juxtaposed against each other at varying heights and lengths. The horizontal paintings are from the series “Tending my Father’s Garden,” referring to the artist’s father’s passing and the continuation of her life in art. The vertical paintings, from the artist’s “Elevations” series, are a response to her current life in Colorado, with their stacked abstracted images and patterns from nature and geophysical forces.

Within each work, imagery and color sit side by side in simpatico, yet simultaneous discord, but it is the juxtaposition of the two series representing past and present, telling a story of the artist’s experience and memory, that brings an emotive power to the exhibition.

Trine is a graduate of The Rhode Island School of Design and spent a year with RISD in Rome, Italy. After graduating, she lived in New York City, working for Betty Parsons and Jack Tilton Galleries while pursuing her own studio work. Since moving to Colorado she has exhibited her work nationally in galleries and museums. Her work has been reviewed in Art in America, ArtNews and the New Art Examiner.

Her work has been commissioned for companies such as Four Seasons, the Peninsula Hotel Hong Kong, and Jacobs Engineering. Other corporate collections include Chase Manhattan, HBSC and Century Link. Public collections include the city of Denver, the state of Colorado, the University of Iowa and the Japanese Consulate.

Trine Bumiller grew up in the Ohio River valley of Cincinnati, Ohio, spending her summers on various lakes in Northern Michigan. The second of four girls, she was born to a Danish mother and an American father who traveled the world, making documentary travel films. She currently lives and works in Denver and Fraser, Colorado.
