Trey Egan – wise with the feeling
Opening Reception: Saturday, June 27th, 6 – 8pm
Exhibition Dates: June 27 – August 29, 2015
Cris Worley Fine Arts is pleased to announce, wise with the feeling, its second solo exhibition with abstract painter Trey Egan. The exhibition opens with an artist’s reception Saturday, June 27th from 6 – 8pm, and runs through August 29th, 2015. In Trey Egan’s paintings, channels of rich color intermingle with indefinite organic forms. His lush and abstract oils on canvas exemplify the beauty of pure paint and are made through the artist tapping into his subconscious without the purpose of depicting specific visual imagery.
Egan employs the use of progressive trance and electronic beats as a means to channel a specific energy to his works. “I can’t explain it. It just makes my nerves react throughout,” says Egan. “It’s actually a physical reaction when I’m painting. Rapid aesthetic synapse follows, and I’m then welcomed into abstraction bliss.” In this way, the artist’s visual language deals with the relationship between the subconscious and physical space and allows the viewer to navigate each composition through his or her own memories and experiences.
Trey Egan received a Master of Fine Art in 2013 at the University of North Texas College of Visual Art and Design. Egan’s brilliant debut during ArtHouston 2012 was followed by several successful solo exhibitions, including Be Still with Me, at Cris Worley Fine Arts in 2013. He has been a part of many juried group exhibitions including some juried by: Peter Doroshenko (Executive Director of the Dallas Contemporary), Toby Kamps (Curator at the Menil Collection), Clint Willour (curator at the Galveston Arts Center) and artists Annette Lawrence, Vincent Falsetta, and Erick Swenson among others. He was also selected to exhibit at the 2013 Texas Biennial in San Antonio.
