Foundation by Trey Hurst

About Foundation

Comprised of 7 large works on canvas, Trey draws inspiration from the constant making and remaking of patterns in a 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.

About Trey Hurst
