Trill Matrix at the Clemente

The female collaborative group, Trill Matrix, has undertaken an experimental exhibition employing an open approach, rather than an umbrella approach. The artists of Trill Matrix have traveled on overlapping paths in New York City’s art communities, and in their art practices. While their artwork demonstrates a variety of strategies and materials, and they are from diverse backgrounds, they appreciate their commonalities in a hectic world and divisive cultural moment, and pass around hats as to the curatorial/organizational roles each engages. This show is curated by Elizabeth Riley. “Trill” is an adjective used in hip-hop culture to describe someone who is considered to be well respected, coming from a combination of the words “true” and “real;” while “matrix” is a situation or surrounding substance within which something else originates, develops, or is contained. Featuring work by: Christina Massey, Jaynie Crimmins, Nancy Baker, Linda Schmidt , Elizabeth Riley, Etty Yaniv, Christine Romanell .

Posit 19 A journal of literature and art

Honored to have my work on the cover of Posit 19 with a fantastic text by Melissa Stern.

Etty Yaniv’s densely layered assemblage and collage works make one keenly aware of the materiality of her practice. Her pieces pop off of the canvas, and then sink back into it. The fluidity with which her rich and wide array of materials are handled —from found objects to paint and paper — creates the impression that her pieces were “born” the way we find them. Although labor- and process-intensive, this work has a deep sense of grace. Each of these pieces carries us through its private narrative, enveloping us in its own story. “
