FEATURED ARTIST: Breanne Trammell
Breanne Trammell’s studio-based work explores objects, icons, and touchstones from popular culture, and mines from her personal history. It presents common experiences and awkward memories that we come to terms with, and aims to celebrate our triumphant moments alongside everyday mundane experiences. Her art commemorates these experiences through humor and playful formalism—like a gigantic crocheted Cheeto or letter-pressed twitter posts.
Trammell lives and works in Wassaic, NY, where she is a core member of the Wassaic Project. Her work has been shown nationally and internationally, including at Mixed Greens Gallery, P.P.O.W. Gallery, Susan Inglett Gallery, and MASS MoCA. Most recently, she performed manicures at Pulse Contemporary Art Fair in Miami, was a Visiting Artist at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, and was awarded the 2014 Ora Schneider Residency Grant at the Women’s Studio Workshop in Rosendale, NY. Breanne received her MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2008, is a Lecturer in Art+Design at SUNY Purchase, and has been a faculty member at Ramapo College of NJ since 2009.
