Alex Trimino: fiber and light
Alex Trimino is a Miami-based visual artist who creates illuminated fiber-based sculptures and installations. Her work re-contextualizes the traditional use of colloquial, lo-tech crafts; crochet, knittings and weavings exploring social views on civilization, technology and gender.
In her work old things, old ways and new technologies commingle together; exploring how we connect to reality today. She uses embroidery and technology, creating a connection between past and present.
Alex Trimino was born in Colombia and lives and works in Miami, FL. She graduated with a Master in Fine Arts from Florida International University and attended Ox-Bow Artist Residency, affiliated with the school of the Art Institute of Chicago, as a recipient of the Joan Mitchell Foundation Scholarship for Visual Artist.
Trimino’s work was exhibited during “OpenArt” International Art Symposium, Sweden, “Dark Light” at Läns Museum, West Gallery, Örebro, Sweden, “Luminous” at Art and Cultural Center of Hollywood, Florida, “Witness to Creativity” at Florida Museum for Women Artists, “Binocular Disparity” at the Museum’s project Room.
