Rhonda Weppler and Trevor Mahovskyhttp://wepplermahovsky.com
Rhonda Weppler and Trevor Mahovsky are New York- and Toronto-based artists who have worked collaboratively since 2004. Both artists have MFA degrees from the University of British Columbia, where they met in 1996. Their sculptures are often all surface, life-scale, and presented as models that are ambiguously bracketed off from the world they depict. Generated by laborious, drawn-out working processes and often ephemeral, their work focuses attention upon its coming into and out of existence.
Their work has been shown extensively throughout Canada, and in the United States, Spain, Japan, Italy and Germany. Mahovsky has written for catalogues and journals such as Artforum and Canadian Art. Their work is represented in public collections including Musée d’art Contemporain de Montreal, Vancouver Art Gallery, and the National Gallery of Canada. Currently, their outreach video project Crafts Abyss is hosted by the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City.
