She will be working at a private studio for the month of June located in the heart of the city of Santurce so she gets a feel for the art scene and local city life.

As part of the residency, Summer will be visting the studios and meeting some of our local artists and hopefully collaborating and exchanging their points of views regarding our culture, art and customs and viceversa.

TPP Present: "Murmuration" solo exhibition by Nathan Budoff

Trailer Park Proyects is proud to present artist’s Nathan Budoff latest solo exhibition titled “Murmuration”. Budoff who has a MFA in painting form the SAIC (Chicago Art Institute) and whom is currently teaching painting at the University of Puerto Rico (Rio Piedras), has been exhibiting actively in the past years with his amazing solo exhibition at the Museo de Arte de Caguas titled “Looking Up” along with curator Elsa Maria Melendez which was a very impressive museum show, a two man exhibition alongside Carlos Ruiz Valarino at Colburn Gallery at the University of Vermont and a solo show titled “Retrato” in Recinto Cerra Alternative space directed by sculptor Jaime Rodriguez Crespo which consisted in expanded drawings on paper with outlines along the walls in what to my opinion was one of the best shows of last year.


Budoff describes the works of the exhibition as an ongoing investigation on the patterns of nature and things constructed by human beings. He studies the trees and how they make up different forms and shapes both symmetrical and asymmetrical. Just like birds in the sky which suddenly disperse and disappear as they fly and how these patterns vanish in a split second in contrast and difference to the constructions and spaces where we build our homes and cities.

These drawings have a high margin of unpredictability because the drawings are not planned and they get the shape and composition along the way of the creation. The intense colors used are vital and unexpected in each work. All works get the elements randomly filling them as the drawing comes along with what felt natural and appropriate at the time. These are drawings created so everyone can see the world around us with a set of different eyes and from another perspective and inspiration.


All the works exhibited are mixed media drawings on paper sized 11”x 15” and will be priced at $350. The show will be traveling in the first week of April to the usual stops at Universidad de Puerto Rico (Rio Piedras) and la Escuela de Artes Plasticas in Old San Juan. Follow us on twitter for up to date schedules and follow us on Facebook to see all the works that will be shown and photos of the stops of Trailer Park Proyects.

TPP Presents: Ally White's - "Stuck Inside" solo exhibition.

Trailer Park Proyects is happy to present the first solo exhibition of Athens, Georgia based up and coming young artist Ally White. The show titled “Stuck Inside” Consists of 20 of her most recent works fresh of her 2013 BFA at University of Georgia where she was the recipient of the Presidential Scholar Award and the Mary Rosenblatt Scholarship.

White’s work was recently selected to be the front cover of New American Paintings issue 106 and she was selected as a “jury picks” for the book 100 painters of tomorrow a project of Beers Contemporary in London which showcases 100 young artists from all over the world. The book will come out later this year ( For more information on Ally’s work you can visit her website

“Stuck Inside” features paintings of imagined still lives and portraits that depict a vibrantly bored world. The works deal with the contrast in domesticity and exoticism – the yearning for something unfamiliar versus being content within home bounds. They are constructed with thoughts about suburbia, vacations, and interior spaces.

All the works presented are done in both painting and collage. The image emerges through a process of erasure, mending and embellishment of these materials.  We will be showing works ranging from $175-$500 in different sizes and will be taken to the UPR Rio Piedras and Escuala de Artes Plasticas in San Juan on February 13. It will also be presented at some point to the NADA members visit to San Juan, Art City of the Future during the same weekend.
