David Trautrimas/Coffee Pot Towers by David Trautrimas
 
In ‘Habitat Machines’ David Trautrimas’ photo based architecture explores the construct of home with a series of residential buildings born of everyday objects. From Art Deco coffee pots to the Constructivist grid pattern on an old bathroom scale, Trautrimas searches for source materials which allude to a greater architectural doctrine usually unnoticed in these machines. Then, by dramatic distortion of scale and context, elements of these objects are meticulously re-assembled into strikingly original structures that are paradoxically familiar by virtue of their origins. Trautrimas was the recipient of the Ontario College of Art and Design Printmaking Medal in 2003 and has appeared in the Framework Foundation Auction as well as the Casey House Art for Heart Auction. His work has appeared and been reviewed in numerous magazines and books including Descant, EnRoute, Report on Business and The National Post and the Globe and Mail. The work of Trautrimas has also recently received the Bronze Medal for Best Use of Illustration from the Magnum Opus Awards. Catalogue available by request.
