Treib’s paintings are composed around sensuous details, absences, and shifts in perspective.
While her work draws on far-ranging references – a hand glimpsed in an early 15th Century Russian icon, the outline of a sleeve in a Piero della Francesca fresco, the contours of a 35 mm camera or a glass clock – Treib’s true subject is the process of looking, through which she discovers new relationships while dismantling what is merely recognizable.
