Traver Gallery is excited to announce our representation of Andrea Dezsö. Originally from Transylvania, Romania, Dezsö currently lives and works in Massachusetts. Known for her hauntingly beautiful drawings, prints and cut-paper works, this new exhibition, If a Tree Falls in a Forest, features her first experiments in hot-sculpted glass and pyrovitreography. Along side these glass-based artworks, Dezsö presents watercolors inspired by the glass, illuminated hand-cut paper tunnel books, and a site-specific mural. The glass artworks were made during her residency at the Museum of Glass in Tacoma and with Dante Marioni at Pilchuck Glass School during the summer of 2019.
Deszo says of her work, “I am interested in myths, folk tales, and the power of storytelling. Much of the imagery of animals, spirits, and the natural world was inspired by the forests and waterways around Pilchuck and the Pacific Northwest. There are no set narratives, each viewer is invited to use the artwork as a point of departure for their imagination.”
