TRISH SIMONITE
 
Trish Simonite was born in Norfolk, England, and moved to Texas in the late 1960s. She began her studies at The University of Texas at Austin, but finished and received her B.F.A and M.F.A. from the University of Texas at San Antonio.  She holds the rank of Professor at Trinity University, San Antonio, where she teaches photography and digital art.  The majority of her photographic series reflect her interest in the landscape and in nature.  Her most recent series deal with the history of the landscape, albeit in a metaphorical and poetic manner.  Other themes that recur in her work are time, and memory.  
           
Her introduction to photography was in an experimental photography course and she continues to push her work in new and different directions. Influenced by Buddhist philosophy she often juxtaposes elements that speak about permanence and transience, the past and the present.  Her work is rooted in and refers to traditional photographic practice; however, she uses contemporary tools to capture and create the images. Like many contemporary artists, her artistic practice and methodology varies to suit each body of work, sometimes shooting and printing straight, unmanipulated images; or sometimes manipulating her photographs.
 
Simonite's photographs have been exhibited in group and solo shows in Europe and throughout the U.S.A., including: Alameda Ayer at the McNay Art Museum, San Antonio; Chimera, Norwich Art Center, Norwich, England; Seeing Through the Century, Carlisle Photo Festival, Carlisle, England; Honky Tonk, BlueCoat Gallery, Liverpool, England; Re-Bloom: Dialogues in Exuberance, Victoria Price Fine Art, Santa Fe, New Mexico; Beauty, a Women in Photography International on-line exhibition; Women Photographers in America, Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery, Los Angeles, California; Liminal Britain, University of North Texas, Denton, Texas; and Binary Articulations, George A. SPIVA Art Center, Joplin, Missouri.

Her work has been published in books and magazines including:  An Introduction to the Art of Photography; Art at Our Doorstep: San Antonio Writers and Artists; A Creative Approach to Photography and Zoom Magazine.  Recent on-line publications include features on the TICKA Arts and Aint-Bad Magazine sites. Collections holding her work include: The Peter Palmquist Collection of Women Photographers and the Women in Photography International Archive, Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library, Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut; the Harry Ransom Humanities Photography Collection, University of Texas at Austin; The Witliff Collection, San Marcos, Texas; The San Antonio Museum of Art; The Grace Museum, Abilene, Texas; the Linda Pace Foundation, San Antonio, Texas and The University Health System Robert P.

UPDATE - JULY 2015 - MARCH 2016


In the summer of 2015 Trish Simonite received a Trinity University summer stipend and spent a month taking photographs along the coast of Norfolk, England. The new series is called The Happisburgh Project. It addresses the history of this ancient landscape as well as Trish’s own very personal memories of this site where her parents had a bungalow and where she has spent many summers. Happisburgh is a small village on the coast of Norfolk where in 2013 mud flats were uncovered on the beach due to coastal erosion. Ancient footprints were found in the mud alongside the teeth of small mammals and other artifacts. The footprints proved to be circa 800,000 years old and are the oldest evidence of human habitation outside of Africa. A few of the photographs from this series will be in an exhibition at Gray Matters Gallery in Dallas in the Ticka Arts Exhibition in February 2016.

Grande, a Wisconsin company known primarily for making cheese awarded Trish a commission. Overland Partners, an architecture firm in San Antonio, designed their new headquarters and artists were commissioned to make work specifically for the new complex. Trish produced four 48”x48” still life images depicting the four seasons.

In September 2015 Trish Simonite began a phased out retirement from teaching at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. She will continue to teach a full load of courses every spring semester through May 2018 when she will retire. She plans to spend her time off traveling, photographing, dancing, reading, gardening, spending time with family and friends.

One of Trish’s goals for the future is to procure an exhibition with her three talented children: Peter Simonite (a director of photography and cinematographer, Nick Simonite (a photographer), Francesca Simonite (a photographer currently pursuing an M.F.A. in photography); and her husband, Richard Simonite, who makes contemporary jewelry.
