“Juxtaposed,” being placed side by side for contrast, speaks to the major paintings in this exhibit by Trine Bumiller on many levels—image, color, design, construction, past, present, experience and memory.

The richly glazed, color-infused works in “Juxtaposed” present multi-layers of imagery that are pulled apart and seen side by side. These large-scale paintings are each constructed from multiple sections of smaller paintings, juxtaposed against each other at varying heights and lengths. The horizontal paintings are from the series “Tending my Father’s Garden,” referring to the artist’s father’s passing and the continuation of her life in art. The vertical paintings, from the artist’s “Elevations” series, are a response to her current life in Colorado, with their stacked abstracted images and patterns from nature and geophysical forces.

Within each work, imagery and color sit side by side in simpatico, yet simultaneous discord, but it is the juxtaposition of the two series representing past and present, telling a story of the artist’s experience and memory, that brings an emotive power to the exhibition.
