The Artists

It is a pleasure to have Helena Wurzel and Emily Trenholm participate in “The Smile Without the Cat.” Helena’s paintings with multiple figures interacting around tables in domestic spaces bear some resemblance to my own interests in painting. My body of work typically revolves around interpersonal exchanges in interior spaces. As an offshoot of this work, I’ve recently been making paintings from the Memorial Bridge in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, overlooking a construction site. I enjoy the interplay of moving machinery against vacillating reflections of the water behind. In this stead, it is wonderful to see Emily’s interpretations of the landscape, and the interesting shapes and colors that arise.
