2015: Participating Artist: John Tronsor

Name: John Tronsor
Hometown: Ephrata, PA
Current Location/ Neighborhood: Pittsburgh/ Lawrenceville

Influential or Favorite Regional Artist: Delanie Jenkins is just wonderful

Artist Statement:
I am an artist who has been interested in ideas concerning representation, processes of cognition and models of ontology. My work finds itself expressed in a variety of media but is typically realized three dimensionally, in video or both. Recently I have been occupied attempting to encapsulate the following three aspects of my practice into coherent wholes: i) the attention and priority of material as directing and providing the foundation for the sense of the work (rather than necessarily functioning as ancillary to the piece, but being integrated into it as base); ii) the construction or staging of a process so that its material production and/or its sense folds back on itself; iii) as an investigation into the relation between interiority and exteriority as expressed at the site of an interstice or membrane.
