Li Trincere (b. 1960, NYC) has exhibited her work internationally for the past 30 years, including in Australia, Belgium, Germany, New Zealand, Switzerland, and the United States. During the early 1980s, she was heavily involved in the East Village abstract painting scene and showed at many of the landmark venues of the time, including Mission Gallery, Pyramid Club, Kamikaze Club, and The World. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, she exhibited at key galleries presenting new abstraction, such as Julian Pretto/Berland Hall, Stark Gallery, and Gabriele Bryers Gallery (all NYC), as well as the legendary Galerie Rolf Ricke in Cologne, Germany. During these critical formative years, she participated in two-person and group exhibitions alongside other pioneering abstract painters, such as Olivier Mosset, Alan Uglow, Steven Parrino, Don Voisine, Mark Dagley, Daniel Levine, Sharon Brant, Neil Campbell, and Gary Lang, among many others.
Li has received awards from the National Endowments for the Arts, Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Edward Albee Foundation, New York State Council on the Arts, and Artists Space. Her work has been reviewed in The New York Times, Bomb Magazine, The Brooklyn Rail, and Kunstforum, among others. Li’s work was included in our recent group exhibition MINUS SPACE, curated by Phong Bui, at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in New York (2008-2009), as well as our group exhibition Escape from New York which traveled throughout Australia and New Zealand (2007-2010). Li holds an MFA in Painting from Hunter College, NYC, and a BFA in Printmaking from Southampton College, Southampton, NY.
