Guillermo Trejo and Andrew Testa


January 20 – March 3, 2023


A/P Main Gallery

About the exhibition

Andrew Testa and Guillermo Trejo are interested in the in-between spaces of printmaking. In their individual practices they see collaboration as necessity (not necessarily collaborating with one another but collaborating with materials, the studio, the ground, etc.). They are interested in the lost and found relationships in print as translation (an imprint of an encounter between two or more things). Andrew creates images through gestures of walking and moving slowly while Guillermo creates through a resourcefulness and responsiveness to the print studio itself. Seeing both artists’ work together, there is a presence of something that is slow (a long walk documenting many small marks on an intaglio plate being bumped and pulled), and something that is quick (a gesture towards space/studio becoming a monoprint). This exhibition explores in-betweenness, collaboration, and translations. It questions what becomes residue, imparting a question of the encounters each artist explores together and apart.
