Artist Trey Hurst’s inaugural Bangkok exhibition brings his architectural training to paintbrush, paper and fabrics, extended through 16 January 2022
PLAY Art House in Bangkok is presenting “Architectonic,” the first local exhibit of visual artist and designer Trey Hurst, which recently opened to a large and appreciative crowd. The exhibition is free, open to the public, and has now been extended through 16 January 2022.
Mr. Hurst, an American now living in Bangkok, creates lush abstracts on handmade paper and fabrics using ink and acrylics. In a highlight of the opening event, the artist rapidly created, on the floor amid a circle of onlookers, two large-scale artworks on canvas using his signature wide brush technique.
For this “Architectonic” show, the artist has organized his work into three series, which fill the walls and, in some instances floors, of the entire PLAY Art House space. The paintings are rooted in architectural concepts ranging from the formal to the experiential and finally to what Mr. Hurst calls the “imaginary.”
Mr. Hurst and PLAY Art House invite visitors to visit the gallery and uncover the array of architectural elements found in these works. The gallery is also offering for sale a limited number of prints and pillows painted by Mr. Hurst.
“Architectonic” continues at PLAY Art House, 993 Song Wat Road, Samphanthawong, Bangkok through 16 January 2022.
Hours: Tuesday – Thursday: 11.00-16.00, Friday – Sunday: 11.00-18.00, Monday closed
