Wendy Trusler

Wendy Trusler is an interdisciplinary artist, designer and writer who creates site-responsive installations that incorporate drawing, painting, text, sculpture, performance, and film.

Much of her work examines the roles that symbol and language play in coding memory, and the ways in which recollections are organized into what we understand as history. Shaped by the experience of having lived in isolation in wild places, ideas around ecology, continuity and regeneration play out in her material choices and the physicality of her work, as well as how it brings people together.

“My current focus is a series of encaustic and mixed media paintings and sculptural elements I’m developing as part of an installation entitled HOW to Do Anything. For KAST 2019, I will exhibit the beginnings of this series alongside works in progress and invite visitors to participate in a collective act of noticing.”
