Rocket to Pops was created in memory of the artist’s father, William “Pops” Trimble. “The artwork refers to the year Apollo 11 landed on the Moon, my father’s love of the night sky, and the year of my birth,” says Trimble. “This is a cathartic, therapeutic, grieving process artwork that explores the absurd metaphor of trying to visit a dead parent, to have never left the launch platform.”
Trimble’s art tends to have a strong visual presence, referencing a fluidity and connection to the environment. Exhibiting a visual cohesion with the landscape and surrounding architecture, have a visceral physicality, and often imply kinetic movement.
“I tend to pursue alternative venues that reach more people outside of traditional galleries,” Trimble says, “I have always had one foot in the art world and one foot in the trades, culminating in crossover conversations that I have always found interesting. It is my ultimate intention to make art that is inclusive, integral, and that it serves as a catalyst for exploration.”
