Bio

Trey Egan b. 1979 – With paintings that channel rich saturation Egan intermingles the vibrancy of color with indefinite organic forms. His lush and abstract use of oil exemplifies the beauty of pure paint, and are made through the artist tapping into his subconscious, without the purpose of depicting specific visual imagery. Part of Egan’s artistic process is rhythmically informed by listening to progressive trance, liquid dub-step, and future bass in his studio. The layering of electronic sound generates specific energy into his works and educates the physical layering of paint on the canvas. This experience, called synesthesia, is the simultaneous perception of two or more stimuli as one gestalt experience. In this way, the artist’s non-objective 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 the spring of 2013 at the University of North Texas College of Visual Art and Design. Early in his career, he was part of many group exhibitions including some juried by: Peter Doroshenko (Executive Director of the Dallas Contemporary), Toby Kamps (director of external projects at London’s White Cube gallery), Clint Willour (curator at the Galveston Arts Center) and artists Annette Lawrence, Vincent Falsetta, and Erick Swenson among others.

Egan’s solo debut “Systematic Motion” during ArtHouston 2012, was followed by his selection to exhibit at the 2013 Texas Biennial in San Antonio. He followed with several solo exhibitions, including Systematic Motion 2012 (Houston, TX), Be Still With Me 2013 (Dallas, TX), Signal Chamber 2015 (Houston, TX), Wise With The Feeling 2015 (Dallas, TX), Future Glow 2017 (Dallas, TX), Visible Levels 2019 (Denver, CO), and Sense Impression 2020 (Dallas, TX). Egan has been exhibited five times at the Dallas Art Fair (2015-2019), and was recently part of Art Aspen 2018. He also showed several paintings at Pulse Art Fair in South Beach, part of Miami Art Week (2018 and 2019). In 2020 Egan will show selected pieces at The LA Art Show in Los Angeles, CA.  His work has been purchased internationally, and by art collectors, and corporate art collections across the nation.
