In recycling materials culled from previous sculptures, Courtney Tramposh continues a formal investigation into the reconfiguration of an object's history and function. Her works carry multiple and varied references to art, architecture, furniture design, patterning. Many works contain within them an allusion to a material void, which, in calling attention to its absence, points to a missing element essential to the understanding of the form's existence. The aesthetic and conceptual focus is dissolved and scattered to the perimeters of the artwork so that the sum of all its parts forms a question, rather than an answer.
Courtney Tramposh was born and raised in Prairie Village, Kansas. She earned her BFA at the University of Kansas in 2003, and, after attending the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, moved to New York. She has recently completed her MFA from Hunter College in sculpture. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
