Roberta Trentin - Multimedia Visual EcoArtist 

Roberta Trentin is a multidisciplinary artist who works in collaboration with the materials and the unknown outcomes. Her work explores overlooked stories of fungi, microorganisms, and plants in the more-than-human world. A background in science and a love of the earth result in an interweaving of macro/micro observations and deeply personal stories in her work. Roberta splits her time between the forests of the Hudson Valley and Brooklyn where she lives with her two sons.

Not on my wishlist to have a solo show. My art practice is based on and thrives through collaborations and mimics mycorrzhal exchanges. I don't consider myself as an individual but as a collaboration of organisms that allows us to co-exist. Cheers!
