BIO & STATEMENT
Beverly Tricco (°1957, United States) is an artist who works in a variety of media. Her mixed-media collages, which include the beach collages shown here, are characterized by the use of found objects and explore the relationship between wabi sabi, a centuries-old concept of beauty, and modern-day recycling culture. By experimenting with aleatoric processes; chance, serendipity and synchronicity, Tricco hopes to ignite the astonishment of the viewer by creating compositions that evoke traces of memory, and balance on the edge of recognition. Her works feature coincidental, accidental and unexpected connections that can only be communicated to others through art. Beverly Tricco currently lives and works near Boston.
Beverly was born in southern Connecticut 1957, and was raised in several cities and towns along Long Island Sound. Her earliest influences were the nuns and priests of St. Stephen’s School and Church in Bridgeport, and TV shows; most importantly, The Little Rascals, Beachcomber Bill, and Tarzan. Her education began with the first-hand knowledge that surprise and beauty are all around; in the gutters, in the weeds, in the dumpster, and in abandoned cars. All you needed was the right pair of eyes.
Eventually, Massasoit Community College taught her the tricks of Paint, Pastels, Printmaking and Pottery, each of which she loves and takes turns embracing. But it turns out, her truest love is her first love; found and foraged beauty. She makes a lot of art, and teaches workshops. Her visual art has been shown in small galleries and eateries in the Boston area and hangs in the private collections of countless friends and family… and a precious few paying customers.
She clearly needs an agent.
