"Late last year, Alumni Affairs manager Kate Styer paid a visit to the studio of Trish Tillman (MFA 2009 Fine Arts) and afterwards tipped us off about the impressive and unique nature of the artist’s latest works-in-progress. Those works have now culminated in “Stage Diver,” which is currently on view at Asya Geisberg Gallery, 537B West 23rd Street, through May 13. “Imagine a ménage à trois between a suburban thrift store, a midcentury modern furniture salon, and a sex shop—the love children born of such a hot-’n’-heavy session might be Trish Tillman’s sculptures,” is how Artforum described the show. We caught up with Tillman recently via email to get her take."
