Trey Hurst: FOUNDATION
5376 W Adams Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90016
Band of Vices is honored to announce the upcoming US solo exhibition debut by Trey Hurst entitled FOUNDATION.
Comprised of 7 large works on canvas, Trey draws inspiration from the constant making and remaking of patterns in our built environment, the lines and grids of urban infrastructure, and the ways in which our man made structures interact with nature. Additionally, his work is heavily inﬂuenced by the history and tradition of pattern in Textile Design. In particular, the use of woven, printed, tufted, and dyed patterns in fabrics and rugs as mechanisms for storytelling and cultural identity.
“What Trey brings to FOUNDATION is a pursuit of balance, combining simple, architectural form and emotional levels, bending them to balance energy.” ~ Terrell Tilford, Creative Director
