Erin Treacy: Reciprocal Relationships focuses on her Compost Project, which began in 2019, where she explored personal food remnants and debris that she stored in her freezer in Brooklyn, NY. Whether it is through a life drawing session, or many photographs taken while the food defrosts, Treacy is depicting an evolving scene where pieces fall, compositions shift, and colors change. It is a glimpse at the changes that will occur through the actual composting process, as our ‘garbage’ becomes fertilizer, facilitating reciprocal nourishment, yet another way how our environment can mirror our internal worlds and interpersonal relationships. Included in the exhibition are paintings of growth in the landscape as well - compositions of flora striving for new life and establishing roots in unexpected places. Treacy is interested in the environment's depiction of time through layers of growth and decay, and how this can serve as a visual metaphor for our own internal worlds. She plays with and questions the potential for reconciliation in the collision of beauty and disgust, searching for an uneasy balance both formally and conceptually.
